Airport Brussels-Zaventem

Brussels' main airport is Brussels Airport, (locally still commonly referred to as Brussels National or Zaventem) (IATA code BRU). Several major carriers operate out of the airport, including the local Brussels Airlines.

A train (€5.10) runs every 15 mins from the airport (Level -1) to Brussels three main stations taking 15-25 minutes with most trains continung to other parts of Belgium. Bus 12 and 21 run every 20 to 30 minutes via metro-station Schuman (where you can transfer to metro lines 1 and 5) to the European district around Place de Luxembourg/Luxemburgplein. The same ticket is valid for a total of 60 minutes on the metro, buses or trams into the centre from the moment it is validated as you get on the bus. The buses depart from level 0. €3 from the vending machine next to the bus stop, or €5 on board.

A taxi to the centre costs around €35. Taxis bleus/blauw (blue): +32 (0)2 268 0000, Taxis Autolux: +32 (0)2 411 4142, Taxis verts/groen (green): +32 (0)2 349 4949. Beware of "waiting" charges if your flight is delayed and you pre-ordered a cab, some companies charge you parking fees + €25-30/h for waiting. Always confirm the final charge with your driver before getting in the car.

Brussels Airport has a luggage locker service (Level 0) where you can leave luggage for a fixed duration. The lockers say that you will have to retrieve your bags within 72 hours or else they will be removed. But they are actually moved to the room next door and stored until you retrieve them. This is a useful facility for people wanting to stow away big suitcases somewhere safe. The rate is €7.50 per day. You need to pay in coins, a change machine is nearby.

Several budget airlines, including Ryanair and Wizzair fly to Brussels South Charleroi Airport (IATA code CRL). This airport is south of Brussels and one hour away from Brussels Midi/Zuid Station at the city centre by shuttle bus (€13 one way, €22 return). This shuttle bus only runs every 30mins, and unless you want to spend a good 40mins in the queue to purchase a ticket, it would be advisable to purchase your ticket online before you arrive Otherwise you can go by train to Charleroi Sud station and then by TEC Bus A (€2.70 one way) direct from Station to the airport. (A combined train+bus ticket from or to Brussels can be obtained for €11.30 at the train station or from the TEC vending machine at the airport). You can also get a taxi from the airport to the city centre, but this will cost a fixed price of approximately €90.
