G4S Belgium has won a six year contract to provide security services at Brussels Airport, one of Europe’s busiest travel hubs.

G4S will provide terminal security, passenger and remote screening, hold baggage screening, access control for VIPs, crew and general aviation personnel and supervisor presence inside the airport authority’s operations centre.

G4S Belgium CEO, Jean-Paul Van Avermaet, said: “We recognise the importance of a balance between a high-level security presence and a class hospitality service.”

The G4S Belgium team developed an ‘output’ based contract, working closely with the customer to establish their key performance indicators.

G4S employs around 900 full-time staff at the Airport including uniformed security officers, contract managers and trainers. It has worked at the Airport in various capacities since 2011.
