TravelSupermarket is the only destination you need to compare Brussels flights and find the perfect deal...
Start packing, because your cheap break in Brussels is mere clicks away. You’ll need chic sightseeing outfits – this is the capital of the European Union after all – and comfortable shoes to get you from market to monument and palace to pub. Don’t miss La Grand Place, the centre of all life in Brussels, and the Palais Royal. Or the 400-year-old bronze boy weeing into a fountain, otherwise known as Manneken Pis.
Flights to Brussels from UK airports take just over an hour. Book in advance and compare flights on TravelSupermarket to bag the lowest fares available. Great-value fares to Brussels are widely available from UK airports. But it’s worth looking at various airports before booking a flight. It can be significantly cheaper, for example, to book Manchester to Brussels flights instead of flying from Birmingham.
TravelSupermarket’s super flight-comparison powers make it easy to find the cheapest fares from the UK to Brussels.
The Belgian capital is served by two airports known as Brussels Airport (BRU) and South Charleroi (CRL) – the more low-cost option...
The national carrier in Belgium is Brussels Airlines. It flies into the international airport (BRU) from airports around the UK including London Heathrow, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham, Newcastle and Edinburgh. Additional flights from Heathrow are operated by British Airways, while Gatwick is served by flights with easyJet. You can also reach Brussels Airport on flights operated by bmi regional from Newcastle and East Midlands airports.
Ryanair is the sole carrier operating from the UK into Charleroi, which is one hour south of the city centre. It flies in from Manchester and Edinburgh airports.
Flights take around one hour from the southeast of the UK and up to one-and-a-half hours from other UK departure points. All flights are non-stop.
Two main airports serve the city of Brussels and getting to and from either one is a cinch...
Brussels International Airport is the main air hub for the Belgian capital. It is 30 minutes by road from the city centre.
There’s a railway station at the airport. Train journeys take 15-20 minutes and cost 8.50 euros per single adult fare. Bus services between the airport and the centre can take twice as long but cost about half as much. A taxi will set you back about 45 euros.
South Charleroi Airport is further from the centre of Brussels. A train and bus combination will have you in Brussels in 90 minutes for a little over 14 euros each. An airport shuttle bus costs 14 euros and gets you into central Brussels in an hour. But because of the distance involved, a taxi fare could run close to 100 euros.
To save the hassle and cost of transfers, consider hiring a car during your break in Brussels. You can pre-book and collect upon arrival at the airport, giving you the freedom to see more of Belgium while you’re there.
With EU VIPs regularly dropping in, hotels in Brussels mean business when it comes to top-notch hospitality...
Visit at the weekend, when the bureaucrats have clocked off for the week, and you can often stay in Brussels’ best hotels for less. But be quick, and book early for popular summer visits or trips to coincide with the Christmas markets, as demand will push hotel prices up.
Stay centrally and have the bars, restaurants and many attractions of Brussels right on your doorstep.
