Brussels Airport, also known as Brussels National, lies approximately 11 kilometres northeast of the Belgian capital.
The airport serves over 18 million passengers every year and has previously been awarded the accolade of Best European Airport by the Airports Council International and International Air Transport Association.
Although Brussels Airport is operated by The Brussels Airport Company, only 25 per cent of the airport is actually owned by the Belgian state, with 75 per cent of the facility belonging to Canadian administrators, the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.
The airport employs over 20,000 staff, managing over 230,000 aircraft movements from the airport’s 109 gates every year.
Visitors to Brussels Airport will find a range of onsite facilities, including numerous speciality shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. Amenities such as banks, money exchange points and places of worship are available, as is a rail link to Brussels, Antwerp and surrounding destinations.
Passengers can also board trains travelling directly to Paris from this station, located under the airport building.
