Travelling to Brussels Airport with the IR "Airport Express" train or with Thalys
Brussels Airport, also known as Brussels National Airport or Zaventem, is Belgium’s main airport.
Brussels National Airport railway station is located on the basement level beneath the airport. The Airport Express provides four shuttle services per hour between Brussels National Airport and Brussels-Midi, via Brussels-Nord and Brussels-Central, in a journey time of around 20 minutes.
Since December 2005, there has been a direct connection between Leuven and the airport, which has also improved transport from Liège and Hasselt. The Diabolo project will create a direct link between the airport and Antwerp and Mechelen by 2012.
New Thalys connection to Brussels Airport
Since 30 October 2011, Thalys directly connects Paris-Nord with Brussels Airport, via Brussels-Midi, in only 1h47.
With this new train connection, Brussels Airport serves Paris and the Ile-de-France region more easily: Parisians will get a direct access to 25 international air destinations operated from Brussels Airport (mainly African, North American and Indian destinations).
