Located just a few miles northwest of Belgium’s capital city, Brussels Airport prides itself on its central European location and its ideal connecting services that link major (and minor) cities across the continent.
Brussels Airport is the headquarters of Brussels Airlines — a Star Alliance member airline — and welcomed more than 24 million passengers in 2017. Flights from BRU travel to more than 100 international destinations, most in Europe and North Africa.
Inside the airport, passengers have access to nine business lounges, including the Diamond Lounge that any traveler can visit for just €32 euros ($39). Other airport services include a pharmacy, porter service, a post office and access to a free mobile app that lets travelers enter their flight information and receive a tailored itinerary for their time in the airport. The app also provides users with discounts at airport shops, waiting times at the security line and notifications of gate changes.
Not only does the airport offer a free, unlimited WiFi connection, there are also three paid computer desks located on the arrivals level at Pier A and at Pier B.
To fill up before a flight, travelers can visit Belle & Belge for traditional Belgian fare in a smart setting, or opt for a pint of one of Belgium’s famous brews at Beers & Cheers, located in the center of a bustling food court-style space next to a Starbucks.
As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.
