    Подъехать непосредственно ко входу теперь нельзя. в duty-free хорошие цены на косметику. Ну и выбор парфюма неплох

    13 minutes by train 🚅 from/to Leuven. Buy your ticket in the NMBS/SNCB app to skip the long lines for tickets. 👍🏼

    The people at G4S managing the security lines are idiots. Leave an extra 2 hours because that is how long it will take while they kettle you in the security line.

    Will I guess it's just an airport! Very busy, but with good shops as long as you aren't in the non-Schengen part!

    Apparently you need to take a number and stand in line for Wi-Fi access. Other than that... nice :-(

    Aeropuerto aviejado e incómodo por los altos niveles de seguridad impuestos actualmente.

    Nothing special here, rows and rows of shops with a few food options in the main terminal more of the same as you walk down the long corridors. Typical European 80's decore.

    The worst bathroom I've ever seen in an airport! The floor was completely wet, and the smell was absolutely disgusting! What a shame!

    Renovated with faster access to check in. Nice and spacious central lounge area. Duty free shops have good price and a large variety. Not a lot of healthy options to eat. Good deals for chocolates.

    Not extremely large, lot of chocolate. Direct trains to the city, not cheap but better than taxi. During weekends "only" 15€ roundtrip and can be bought in advance
