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).

    Very organised Airport with friendly staff. After passport control I realised that I forgot flowers that I bought for my girl, at the security, they even allowed me to come back to get them. Grateful!

    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

    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:)
