Transfers at Brussels Airport

Connecting at Brussels Airport is easy since there is only one main Terminal.
All flights arrive and depart from gates A (Schengen flights*) or from gates B & T (non-Schengen flights).

If you are already in possession of your boarding pass for your connecting flight, you may proceed directly to the gate. When exiting the plane, do not forget to check the flight information screens for your departure gate. If you need to get a boarding pass for your connecting flight, please proceed to the nearest Brussels Airlines Service Centre.

Please note: From April 7th 2017 onwards, the new article 8.2 of the Schengen Borders Code enters into force. From that day on, the border police will screen every traveler (including EU-citizens) leaving or entering the Schengen area more intensively. This may result in longer waiting times.
