Brussels National Airport is a busy airport that handles the majority of Belgium’s air traffic. There are all the services you would expect from a major airport.

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).

    "This will be a day long remembered": the ANA R2-D2 STAR WARS jet is coming round today, 4th of November 2015. If you're travelling through Pier B, you may catch a glimpse of it this afternoon.

    Obiously there are just few shops/restaurants open on public holidays. It's really difficult to get something to eat on 1st of January after 5 PM. No free wi-fi. Welcome to 2014.

    Такс Фри лучше проходить до сдачи багажа, потому что офис после паспортного контроля работает на много реже. Замотку чемоданов найти нелегко, но она - на этаже вылетов рядом с эскалатором и лифтом.

    One of the most striking innovations at Brussels Airport is the Connector, a building which links the passenger terminal to Pier A above-ground. It will open to the public on March 26th, 2015.

    Küçük bir liman. Metrosu şehrin merkezine kadar gidiyor. Açıklayıcı bilgiler yeterli seviyede.

    Terminal A-T is very very limited in services. Avoid the sports bar unless you want to spend a lot for few

    The free Wi-Fi is great, so are the connections to the airport. But our airport need more shops and thing to do. Great security as well!

    Don't worry if you didn't have time to buy chocolates there are plenty there. But that's not the case for beers unfortunately

    Starbucks at departures level is closed for renovation till 1st of December 2013. Craving for their famous coffee? There are other Starbucks coffee bars both in Pier A and Pier B.
