How many aircraft movements did Brussels-Airport Zaventem number in 2016?

Brussels Institute for Statistics and Analysis (BISA) - Did you know? - 05/12/2017

Answer: 223,688

These 223,688 aircraft movements include the take-offs and landings by passenger flights, freight flights, general aviation (air crews, business flights, private charter flights, etc.) and military flights.

223,688 aircraft movements is considerably less than in 2014 and 2015, where respectively 231,528 and 239,349 movements were recorded. The main reason for this is the terrorist attacks that took place on March 22 2016, which played havoc with air traffic during the months of March and April.
