Antwerp Airport is the gateway to an elegant city known for its architectural heritage, fine dining and lively atmosphere. Antwerp deservedly rivals popular short break destinations like Bruges, Brussels and Ghent. Antwerp is a major European business centre and important centre of the diamond trade.
This is a very small airport with just a handful of departures every day. Arriving passengers can be out of the airport in less than 20 minutes. Departing passengers can check in up to 20 minutes before departure. The smart interior has been greatly enhanced by opening of a new passenger terminal in 2005. There is a business lounge, a restaurant and wi-fi internet access. Efficient public transport connects the airport with the city centre. The city is just 2km from the airport.
The cheapest direct flights in recent years have been with CityJet, with flights from London City Airport and Manchester. CityJet flights account for a large proportion of the airport’s total traffic. Low-cost airlines like Ryanair and EasyJet have been reluctant to operate the route given the convenience of the Eurostar rail services.
