About Charleroi Airport

Charleroi Airport, or CRL, formally known as Brussels South Charleroi Airport, is located in central Belgium just outside the town of Charleroi, 29 miles (46 km) south of Brussels.

The area has been connected to aerial activities since 1919, when a flying school was founded on the spot. Airplane manufacturers and repair shops followed soon after. After World War II, Charleroi Airport was opened for public use, but attracted little attention from major airlines. For about 50 years, the airfield was used mostly for private flights, airplane training, and charter flights.

Things changed in 1991 when the Brussels South Charleroi Airport was incorporated. The airport began to attract commercial flights, and Ryanair made Charleroi its first hub on the European continent in 1997. Charleroi Airport is also still home to many of Belgium's largest flying schools.

The airport is mostly served by low-cost airlines such as Ryanair, Jetairfly, Jet4you, and Wizz Air, with flights to and from destinations in Europe and northern Africa. Besides the regular flights, seasonal flights to popular vacation spots and ski resorts in Europe and Africa are added to the schedule during the appropriate months.

Charleroi Airport has a single runway and a single terminal. The terminal is a new building, opened in 2008. The terminal includes most services travelers need, including currency exchange, Wi-Fi, car rental, a duty-free shop, and eating and drinking outlets.

There are no rail connections at the airport, but special buses to the Charleroi-South and Brussels-South rail stations run regularly. Shuttle buses also run between Charleroi Airport and major cities in Belgium and neighboring countries, including Antwerp, Luxembourg, Metz, and Eindhoven. Charleroi is about 45 minutes' drive from Brussels, and two hours away from Cologne, Paris, and Amsterdam.
