Belgium plane tickets & flights

  

 

  

 

Renowned cultural travel destination in Western Europe. Might not need much presentation...

Belgium is an economically powerful and politically highly important country (NATO's headquarters and many EU institutions are based here), despite the small area.

Of course, Belgium is also famous for its sweets, such as the gaufre.

And now instead of making you hungry, we turn to make you better documented in the domain of air travel.

 

Domestic flights

Flight possibilities exist between Anvers (Antwerpen), Liège, Brussels (Bruxelles), but it's perhaps a better idea to hit the road. You'd waste your time at the gates, boarding and then transferring. The price isn't worth it either. A short drive would cost you far less in a rental car or you could take a bus from one city to another.

 

International flights

Intense air traffic reaches Brussels (Bruxelles), the national capital where many European low cost airlines roam. Some have even installed bases at the Charleroi Airport, which is far south from Brussels.

Belgium is one of those European destinations that you can easily reach by airplane. Also due to the fact that it has a central location, stuck between France, Germany, Holland and Britain is not far away either.

 

Airlines serving Belgium

 

Here are the most important indigenous carriers.

Interestingly most of Belgium's air traffic is due to foreign carriers or foreign-owned/subsidized/operated airlines. Since the flag carrier Sabena has went bankrupt, the low cost airlines have gained a boost.

 

Abelag Aviation

Operates primarily charter, air taxi and various other on-request flights.

 

Brussels Airlines

Subsidiary of Lufthansa based at Brussels Airport.

The number of destinations is huge considering the small size of Belgium: 76 own and 128 including codeshare destinations.

Brussels Airlines operates flights extensively to Africa (including many daily flights to Sub-Saharan destinations), Israel and of course Europe
