Trip Report Belgian airports

Jump to last reply

Since the attacks and the recent planned ones, the security is tightened in Belgium at airports.
Here are my observations for Charleroi (Brussels south) and Zaventem (Bruxelles international) :
Cars are filtered. You can only go via one file (before we had at least 2) so this might cause for traffic jams. These checkpoints are manned by military.
Zaventem : you are prechecked outside the airport under some kind of tents (like Nielsen huts). Xray of the luggage only.
Charleroi : doors are manned by security and you can only use one entry and one exit - count some hundreds of meters more on foot.
Inside, nothing special. Ah, yes lasagnas were good at Charleroi.
On both occasions (a saturday at 7 pm at BRU and now at CLR) I consider it took us 10 min more than before. However we may have been lucky... Both times non overseas. But today outside EU.
Mvg.
