Book a Charter Flight to Brussels and Travel in Comfort

Brussels Zaventem Airport (BRU) is Belgium's most important airport and one of the largest in Europe. Its location is ideal, at just over 10 kilometres from the centre of Brussels. As the home of many of the most important EU institutions, Brussels is a hub for politicians and businessmen alike.

Brussels Airport: Optimal Time Management

Brussels Airport began in 1914 as a zeppelin landing pad. Numerous renovations and expansions carried out in the wake of the two world wars shaped the airport to what it is today: a modern, spacious facility with record passenger numbers. Only in 2015 was a subsequent new building added to the airport’s premises.

Ease and punctuality of travel is essential for MEPs attending sessions or meetings at the European Commission, European Council, or European Parliament in Brussels. The same is of course true for business travellers and other dignitaries. The short distance from the city centre to Brussels Zaventem Airport allows one to make the most of the time in the city. Chartering a jet means that not only do you decide when to take off, but there is also no need to arrive at the airport two hours before your flight as with commercial airlines. You can tailor your journey even further with a limousine service, ensuring a stress free and timely transfer so that you can concentrate on what’s important.

When time is truly of the essence, it isn’t even necessary to leave the airport. If desired, your meeting can be organised at the Regus Skyport Meeting Centre, allowing you to head straight back to your charter flight and on to the next destination. You’ll find conference rooms with all the modern equipment you would expect to be able to hold an efficient meeting. Rooms can accommodate small meetings of two, or up to 80 people. Various additional services such as catering and refreshments can be organised according to your wishes. The meeting rooms are available Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 6:00pm.
