Turin to Antwerp

I could not find any flights from Turin to Antwerp (Ryan Air had no availability). Can anyone make some reccomedations on other cities to consider flying in out of? Is a train an option. Would appreciate any insite.

Your best bet may be to check out flights from Milano (MXP or LIN). The train from Torino to Milano takes 90 minutes. From there you would need another bus to get to Malpensa (MXP) or Linate (LIN) airports, which would take up to an hour.

Instead of looking to fly directly to Antwerp, investigate flying to Amsterdam (AMS) or Brussels (BRU).

I know that BA flies from Torino to London Gatwick. (LGW) From there you could catch a train to Brussels.

Otherwise, if I were plotting a train route from Torino to Antwerp, my first thought would be to go through Lyon, then Paris, then to Antwerp (via Brugge?).

What about the possibility of flying Turin to Amsterdam on Meridiana and taking the train from there?

Try Transavia to AMS or Rotterdam. OR try Meridiana

Ryan Air does not fly to Antwerp; not many airlines do (unfortunately). Your best bet is to find a flight to Brussels, as that would be closest.

Actually, looking at it; there are several flights a day between Antwerp and London City, and there's also a direct flight between Turin and London City. City is a small and easy to navigate airport. If you need to be in Antwerp, that might be the easiest thing to do, if not the cheapest.

Ryan Air flies from Torino to Brussels and Dublin, which is what I assume the OP meant by saying it had no availability.

I also wanted to say that I'm pretty sure you can catch a bus from Torino directly to Malpensa. From there, it is probably easy to find a flight to Brussels and perhaps a bus directly from the airport there to Antwerp.

Ah yes, but they don't really fly to Brussels, they fly to Charleroi, which is not the same thing, particularly if you need to go to Antwerp. Malpensa - Brussels then bus or train to Antwerp would be better.

I guess I'm getting to be a pain in the a** but in instances like this I really think it would be helpful if we heard a reply from the OP rather than hearing ourselves talk.

Speak for yourself, Dukey! I'm learning something from this.

FWIW I drove it a few years ago.

To do it again I would take the TGV to Paris and catch the Thalys to Antwerp.
