How to get from the airport to Antwerp

Brussels National Airport

The airport is located about 45 kilometres from the centre of Antwerp. The most convenient way to reach Antwerp is by taking the SN Brussels Airlines Express Bus, a direct coach service from the airport to the centre of Antwerp (De Keyserlei – Antwerp Central Station). The bus runs every hour from 5 am to midnight (on Sundays from 7 am to midnight) and reaches the centre of Antwerp in approximately 45 min. A ticket costs €10 and can be bought in cash on the bus. The bus station is located on the ground floor below the arrival hall in the airport terminal. You can find more information at: 

You can also take the train to Antwerp at the underground train station at the airport. There are 4 trains an hour to Antwerp during the day. You can find the timetables at or Belgian Railways 00 32 (0)2 528 28 28. The journey takes approximately 1 hour (you have to change at “Brussel-Noord” station) and costs €9,50.  

Antwerp Central Station is situated in the heart of the centre, at about 10 minutes walking distance from the City campus.

Brussels South Charleroi Airport

If you fly with Ryanair, you will arrive at the airport of Charleroi, known as 'Brussels South Airport', located 46 km south of Brussels. Upon arrival you can buy a ‘bulk’ ticket for €10.50 at the Ryanair desk. This ticket covers the bus rides by public bus (line A) from the airport to the Charleroi-South train station, plus the train ride from there to any railway station in Belgium. There is a direct train link Charleroi-Antwerp, which takes approximately 1.5 hours. You can find more information at: .
