    Air travel intelligence company OAG named CRL as Europe's second most punctual airport in 2015. CRL was Ryanair's first continental base and welcomes around 7 million passengers a year.

    If you need to take the shuttle bus to or from the city, and can book your tickets way in advance (more than a month) than possibly you will get them for 5 euros one way. Just check the website!

    Flight in the early morning ? Take Van Der Valk hotel ! Cheap and you can leave your car there for free when on holidays! So no parkingfees at the airport. Hotel has free shuttle to the airport!

    You can store your luggage in the lockers near the parking elevators. But keep in mind that although you rent the locker for 24 hours, once you open it, you must pay the fee again to close it :)

    You can share a cab to Brussels South Station. It's about 100€. If you are 7 or 8 you'll pay 12€ each. No have to wait, cheaper and faster than the shuttle !

    After passing security control, prices are quite interesting: 3,5€ for a 0,5l bottle of Coke (restaurant) and 5€ for 6-pack of Jupiler beer in 0,33l cans (Duty Free shop). What will you choose? :D

    45-1hr travel from Brussels via shuttle. Buy souvenirs and belgian delicacies in Carrefour in Brussels. Goods at the Sky Shop are not tax free (unless stated) and are more expensive.

    An advice: to go to Bruxelles don't take the shuttle bus to Gare du Midi, but take the local bus to Charleroi station, then take the train to Bruxelles. It's cheaper,more comfortable and more frequent

    You can go from and to the airport by sharing a cab with other travellers. Definetely more comfortable and for 3 or 4 euros more than the shuttle

    Instead of the bus take a shared taxi (they leave when they reach 8 people).. The price is exacly the same (13 euro) and your trip to the center is much more comfortable..

    This airport was built in 2005 and looks like a communist era build. Processes would deserve an optimization - typically no separate luggage drop - lucky that the wizzair prices are good.

    It's an airport, with airplanes. It's not in Brussels, it's not even close to Brussels, but you can get there by bus, or by train in about an hour. It's cheap to get here or away from here.
