Finding cheap flights to Brussels from Edinburgh Airport (EDI) is easy with TravelSupermarket. You can compare deals for both connecting and non-stop flights between the two cities.
Both Ryanair and Brussels Airlines currently offer direct services to Brussels from the Scottish capital, with an average journey time of one hour and 30 minutes.
Flights with Brussels Airlines land at Brussels International Airport (BRU), which is the main hub for international travel and close to the city. Ryanair touches down at South Charleroi Airport (CRL), a little further from central Brussels.
One of the 10 busiest airports in the UK, Edinburgh Airport serves more than nine million passengers each year.
Plentiful parking around the airport makes arriving by car a breeze. Book your spot well in advance, however, to make the biggest savings.
Bus and coach services operate between the airport and Edinburgh city centre, as well as numerous other towns and cities. The airport isn’t connected to the rail network, so arrive at either Waverley or Haymarket station and catch a transfer from there. It takes around 25 minutes to travel between the city centre and the airport.
The usual array of shops, restaurants and bars are present at Edinburgh Airport. Time in the Aspire Lounge or the No. 1 Lounge is an extra worth considering if you plan to jet away in style.
Families with young children can keep boredom at bay in one of the three soft play areas.
You don’t have to worry about being in the right place, as Edinburgh Airport has only one main departure terminal.

If you’ve booked cheap flights from Edinburgh to Brussels with Ryanair, you’ll arrive at South Charleroi Airport. An hour by road from central Brussels, you won’t necessarily pay more to transfer from this airport (not by coach, anyway).

Take chocolate-chomping, beer-downing, waffle-scoffing trips here to taste Belgium on a plate (or four); make it a museum-filled weekend of culture; come for a chic bar-hopping getaway; or let the kids run wild in the beautiful parks, at the zoo or in Mini-Europe in Brupark, which features plenty of entertainment for a fun day out.
Must-sees include Grand Place, the Palais Royal and Manneken Pis – the famous, 400-year-old statue of a boy having a wee!
