Travel to Brussels by plane
There are five airports in the proximity of Brussels. Brussels Airport in Zaventem is the biggest one and is also the closest airport to Brussels. It’s just 15 km away from Brussels which you can either reach by (rental) car, taxi, bus or train. The second biggest airport in Belgium, the Brussels South Airport in Charleroi, is located about 50 km from the city centre. It’s mostly used by low-cost carriers like Ryanair and Wizzair. From this airport, you can reach Brussels by bus (shuttle), train or car.
The airports in Antwerp (50 km from Brussels), Liege (20 km from Brussels) and Ostend-Bruges (120 km from Brussels) are much smaller than the abovementioned. The airlines operating in these airports are flying to several mostly-European destinations. Again, you can get to Brussels by car, train or bus.
