Brussels is a melting pot of cultures and is centrally-located in Europe. It is also where Brussels Airport – or Zaventem – is located, one of the busiest in Europe serving almost 22 million passengers a year. It is also an important cargo centre, handling 489,000 tons of cargo. Passenger and cargo operations at the airport account for around 60,000 employees working directly or indirectly to sustain these activities. Zaventem has one large terminal with several piers. Brussels South Charleroi which serves mostly low-cost airlines has two terminals. Both airports feature facilities and services including shops, restaurants, ATMs and parking lots.
To reach Zaventem, you can take a taxi from your hotel or use the bus or train system. By bus, catch De Lijn routes 272 and 471 from Brussels North Station/NATO. From Roodebeek underground station, routes 359 and 659 also head to the airport. If using the railway, get on a train from the Central Railway Station direction 'Aeroport' which is a mere 17-minute journey. To get to Brussels South, use the shuttle bus that you can catch at Midi Station. If you are in a hurry, hail a taxi to the airport. Another option is to get on a train toward Charleroi-South station then catch a bus to reach the terminal.
