The airport is in Zaventem, 14km outside the city centre and is well served by public transport. The Airport City Express train service is the most popular way to get to and from the airport. The 15–20 minute service runs four times per hour, from just before 6am to around midnight. A one-way ticket costs €8.50.

Alternatively, there is a regular bus service between the airport and Gare du Nord. The hourly departures cost €4–7. There are also direct coach services to Antwerp (€10).

    When you check in international passport was faster than id card, only one person was at counter while one was closed, many people confused and not happy, since it was a very busy day

    After the security check, there's a cheap water distributor.

    Nice modern airport. Only one terminal so (too) long walking distances between certain gates. Long time parking options in walking distance from departure hall (P3 reservation, book well ahead).

    The bottles of "travel water" (€ 1) are way cheaper than what you will find in other shops or bars after the security checkpoint.

    12-14 check-ins placement on the second floor is almost empty and has nice (but short) sofas to sleep. Also you can close doors from main hall and keep to a minimum number of people in this area:)

    Although much better than Charleroi, it's insane that they only have ONE person per line in international departures checking passports. Almost missed my flight because of this. Get there early.
