A quick guide to flying from Belgium's airports

Belgium has several regional airports as well as the main hub at Zaventem

Brussels National

Let's start with Belgium's biggest airport at Zaventem. Brussels Airlines has new direct flights from Brussels to Toronto, as well as from Brussels to New York (Newark) in collaboration with United Airlines. Delta Airlines also offers daily non-stop flights to New York JFK.

Recently added destinations in Europe include Thessaloniki and Heraklion in Greece.

15km from Brussels; up to six trains an hour connect with the capital

Brussels South Charleroi

Belgium's second-largest airport is also a popular choice for travellers. According to travel analysts at OAG, Charleroi is the second most punctual airport in the world, with roughly 94% of flights arriving on time. Two of Europe's biggest low-cost airlines, Ryanair and Wizz Air, fly to a wide range of European destinations from Charleroi. New destinations include Lublin in Poland and Timisoara in Romania.

One of the more underrated airports in Belgium. Despite its reputation for being mainly a cargo hub, Liège offers summer flights to destinations all over the Mediterranean.

Antwerp International

Though usually not the first Belgian airport that comes to mind, Antwerp has become a viable travel base for business people and tourists alike. CityJet offers up to four flights a day to London City Airport, Chalair flies to Caen and Geneva and Jetairfly offers 21 flights a week to Alicante, Barcelona, Berlijn, Ibiza, Malaga, Nador, Palma de Mallorca, Rome and Split.
