Brussels South Airport, also known as Charleroi Airport is 46 km south of Brussels. Once at the airport, you can get to Brussels by bus, train or taxi. It is a small airport but it has a very large potential, as Ryanair operates from it. It receives more that 5 million passengers per year. Since 2008, there is a new terminal, the old one being used just for air freight.
CHARLEROI AIRPORT HISTORY
The airport dates back from 1919 when it was built as a flight school. During World War II, the site was used as an Advanced Landing Ground (A-87) for the allied air forces, since September 14, 1944 until August 10, 1945.
1997 will mark a before and an after for Charleroi Airport: Ryanair starts operating from there. From then, the annual traffic has been increasing until it reached the maximum capacity of 5 million passengers per year.
