With buzzing beer halls, café-heavy public squares and Christmas markets crammed with festive treats, Brussels is a hip city-break destination for any season.
If you’re looking for direct flights to Brussels from Birmingham Airport (BHX), you’re in luck, as Brussels Airlines operates more than 20 non-stop services between the two cities each week. With an average journey time of just over an hour, even a snappy weekend break is within grasp.
The city of Brussels is served by two airports: Brussels International Airport (BRU) and South Charleroi Airport (CRL), which is further from the city and favoured by low-cost carriers. Non-stop flights from Birmingham to Brussels with Brussels Airlines land at the more convenient Brussels International Airport.
Just five miles from central Birmingham and within easy reach of the extensive motorway network of the Midlands, getting to and from Birmingham Airport is a breeze; part of the reason why nearly 10 million passengers pass through the terminal building every year.
Many choose to drive and park, while the airport’s direct connection to Birmingham International railway station also makes this a popular getaway point for rail passengers. Coaches and buses drop off and pick up passengers too. If you plan to park at the airport, booking well in advance is the best way to secure a cheap deal.
To make your flight from Birmingham to Brussels extra special, book your place in one of the airport’s two executive lounges. Both the Aspire Lounge and the No. 1 Lounge offer excellent pre-flight hospitality, while the champagne bar in departures also delivers an elegant start to your getaway.
Travelling with children? The Sky Zone, near Gate 54, keeps both younger and older kids entertained at no cost.
Getting away is easy, as there is only one main departure terminal at Birmingham Airport.

The beautiful capital of Belgium, Brussels is a place to loosen that belt and tuck into local delicacies. Beer, chocolate, waffles… sweet teeth rejoice and beer connoisseurs cheer – you’re going to have a fantastic time in tasty Brussels.
Sightseeing will soon work off some of that overindulgence. Happily, there is much to see and do here. There are museums for lovers of art and culture, family-friendly attractions for those with children, and places such as Grand Place, where cameras snap at landmark buildings that include the ornate Town Hall, magnificent guildhalls and the city’s museum in the Breadhouse.
Of course, most pictures taken here have that statue of a boy happily weeing – Manneken Pis – filling the frame. Cheeky.
