Belgian capital, Brussels, is an important European center of culture and politics. Being an international city, it is served by two large airports. Brussels Airport is the primary airport that serves the city, while Brussels South Charleroi Airport is often used by budget airlines.
Brussels Airport began operating in 1940 and has been consistently ranked one of the best airports in the world. It has a single terminal and is assisted by double piers to accommodate the large number of passengers who use this airport. Brussels South Charleroi Airport is 46 kilometers away from downtown Brussels and takes much longer to reach.
