Brussels Airport (BRU)


Located in the northeast of the Belgian capital, Brussels Airport is used by more than 22 million visitors annually. The airport is a major European hub, flying to 238 destinations globally.

Originally constructed by the German army as a military airfield during their occupation in 1940, the airport was developed after the war, in 1948, to serve civilian passengers. A cargo terminal, named Brucargo, was constructed in 1976 and now handles 495,000 tonnes of cargo per year.

Brussels Airport has a single terminal split into multiple levels for public transport, arrivals and departures. It is served by three runways.
