POM Limburg opens up space at DronePort for Brussels Airport  


Brussels Airport is investing in DronePort in Sint-Truiden to strengthen its role in drone technology. The airport recently announced that it is buying a 30% stake. POM Limburg recently sold its shares, thus making way for a new strategic investor.  

POM Limburg was at the forefront of the main innovative campuses in Limburg, including DronePort. The campus, located on the former airbase of Sint-Truiden, is an initiative of the Limburg investment company LRM, the city of Sint-Truiden, JK Invest and POM Limburg. Since 2013, the ecosystem at DronePort has been promoting research and innovation in the drone and ‘Advanced Air Mobility’ sectors. That ecosystem includes not only a campus but also a regional airport, a drone test site and an incubator.

With this investment, Brussels Airport aims to strengthen its role in drone innovation and development. The company is already working on several drone projects today in areas such as airport security and operational efficiency.
