Charleroi – Brussels South Airport

You are here Home  > Belgium  > Brussels (Bruxelles, Brussel) >  Charleroi – Brussels South Airport

Charleroi – Brussels South Airport handles mostly cut-price airlines like Ryanair and some charter airlines. This small airport is located about an hour south of Brussels near the industrial city of Charleroi. With limited flights you shouldn’t expect the services that you would get at a bigger airport such as Brussels National or even Antwerp, but this airport has surprisingly good transport connections to both Brussels and Charleroi city centres.

TEC bus route 68 operates between the airport and Charleroi Sud train station. The journey takes only 18 minutes and costs €1.90. A faster shuttle bus (route A) also makes the journey to Charleroi Sud station but costs €5. From Charleroi Sud station there are frequent trains to destinations throughout Belgium and Europe.

There is also a direct coach service into Brussels. The 45 minute journey between the airport and central Brussels costs €5–14 with departures every 30 minutes. This airport coach service terminates in central Brussels at the southern entrance to Gare du Midi.

    Burası Brüksel falan değil. Brüksel şehir merkezinden trenle yaklaşık 1 saat süren bir yer. Kıyın paraya THY ile uçun. Biz ettik bir hata siz etmeyin.

    Küçük hava alanı.. brüksele uzak... çıkışta hemen otobüsler var.. ama indi bindi yapmak istemiyorsanız.. zaman kaybetmek istemiyorsanız.. bizim ki gibi özel araç sizi almayacaksa tercih etmeyin derim.

    Küçük bir havaalanı ve genelde rötar yapmıyor uçuşlar. Merkezden uzak olması dezavantajı.

    Small but quite cosy airport. Big dining area near the gates. Sometimes huge lines for a shuttle bus to the city but the transport well organised.

    Air travel intelligence company OAG named CRL as Europe's second most punctual airport in 2015. CRL was Ryanair's first continental base and welcomes around 7 million passengers a year.

    Paul bakery outside is the best option for quick meal. The airport itself has an extra access tent which is another level of security.

    Avoid fibco shuttle bus to Gare du Midi-Bruxelles. Take a mini cab that will take you there for less money and more quickly(15€ vs 18)

    An advice: to go to Bruxelles don't take the shuttle bus to Gare du Midi, but take the local bus to Charleroi station, then take the train to Bruxelles. It's cheaper,more comfortable and more frequent

    If you take a train from Brussels Central, it could be delayed. Airport is definitely not close to Brussels it's almost in France. And thanks new rules going through security is a long journey.
