CRL: Brussels South Charleroi Airport (Belgium)

Charleroi (Brussels South) CRL / EBCI .

Airport website :
http://www.charleroi-airport.com/doc.ph ... d=1&site=1

The airport lies south of the small town of Gosselies, north of Charleroi - and some 65 km south of Brussels center.

One can reach it
- by car
In my opinion, until a new access is built from the highway, the easier way is to go as usual to the old terminal and then go on around the eastern end of the runway to the new terminal.
- by coach from Brussels
Brussels : the coach stop is rue de France, on the side of the "Bruxelles Midi" (Brussel Zuid) railway Station (rather far down the right side when looking at the front of the station).
There is a coach departing from Brussels at about one hour interval from 04.30 to 20.30 - and from CRL the same between 08.30 and 23.30.
Fare is at the moment (July 2013), one way :
- on the net : from 5 to 14 euros (maximum)
- 17 euros by the driver or at the vending machines

- by train
to Charleroi Sud + bus TEC

- near door 2 : a balance to check your baggage weight

Airside, past the security check :
- a skyshop with all the customary goods on sale in such shops : perfumes, alcohols, fashion, watches, sunglasses, and so on - also a few books and magazines
- where to eat and drink something
- a newspaper stand
- and, of course, the boarding gates. (To the left, the passport control giving access to the gates for the non-Schengen destinations).
- with a goodview of the apron, all along
The apron is two floors down, by stairs or lift;
