"isn’t a free spot to sit"

(Belgium)

Not Verified | Terminal 2. 5 flights scheduled between 16:45 and 21:15, 2 flights delayed of about 40 minutes. At 18.00hrs there isn’t a free spot to sit in the terminal not even on the floor because it is full of people already sitting there or standing up and waiting! Rude security staff as always. No food and beverage options, just a small packed refreshments bar with limited and uninviting food on offer. Duty free shop smaller than a run down night shop. To make the experience even more pleasant there is only one small set of toilets for the entire “terminal”!

"Avoid at any cost"

(Poland)

Trip Verified | The worst airport I've been to and I've visited many European, Asian and American ones. Poorly connected with Brussels (in fact, it's very far from the city), minimal amenities, no comfort zone for the passengers, hours and hours (literally) of standing in the lines for the security checks. Dirty toilets. No information available. No drinking water fountains. Avoid at any cost. If you need to fly from Brussels, use the airline that flies out of Zavantem.

"Wretched quality"

(Hungary)

Not Verified | Worst airport Terminal (T2) ever. Wretched quality, overpriced "duty free" shop and snack bar (only one snack bar! No vending machine or the option of something else!) It's not European quality!

"lack of easy signage"

(Belgium)

Really bad. Hour long queues for passport control of EU citizens. Missed one bus, and then another, a nearly empty bus to Brussels because of lack of easy signage for buying tickets. Not possible to buys ticket on the bus. Staff all very apologetic (thank you!), but it was not their fault. Bus ticket of EUR is a complete rip-off!

"Worst airport ever"

(Belarus)

Trip Verified | Worst airport ever. No smoking area, 1 small cafe with extremely overpriced food, 1 small duty free shop. Also, very few seating places, placed on the other side to charging points, which means you should seat on the dirty floor to get your device charged. That's all you should know.

"Terminal 2 dirty"

(Italy)

Trip Verified | Terminal 2 dirty, toilets worse than in a refugee camp but with a 5 stars pricing bar, no news-stand (local or international newspapers or magazines = travellers are supposed to be analphabets but in need of perfumes and spirits at the local poor duty free). This site should be a main entrance to Belgium. Belgians should be aware of the public image offered = disgusting.

"there is no basic management"

(Portugal)

Not Verified | Checking-in, one does not need to be the best Logostical Engineer to figure out that the best - and fairest - system to manage people (that’s what travelers are). Provide them with a first in, first out system. In Charleroi they use the “Belgian” system. The smartest - or non educated - wins. And this works because there is no basic management. By Basic I mean (suggest) a single line for all to check in. With this, they avoid counters opening 30 minutes later and accepting people (smarts) that just arrived. Just because is low cost airport does not need to be low brain usage as well.

"not worth naming it an airport"

(Hungary)

Not Verified | Best review of this 'airport': it is a place where cattle handlers would not send their animals. Really ridiculous, not worth naming it an airport. Our garage is larger and more comfy. Of the items below, we coud not give less than 1 star appreciation. Like: terminal seating. 1 post stamp sized terminal with less seats than an average bus? Come on! 3 flights are waiting for boarding, that's like 450 people who have to deal with a 100'ish seats? Food & beverages? 1 place in check-in area: closed! Another place in terminal 2: hard to call it horeca. Bar and some digusting snacks. Shopping: clearly the only thing that counts: jerking as much money out of the travellers instead of giving at least some comfort. Just demolish the thing and start all over again! Or quit and let BRU take over (which is a real airport). 1/10 is much more than they deserve, but is because the check-in staff was really enjoyable!

"What a rip off"

(Belgium)

Not Verified | Astounding! Doing a 5 min drop off of my father in law for his flight and no kiss and ride option. Forced to pay 2E for 5 mins parking. What a rip off!!

"one of the worst"

(Ireland)

Not Verified | Honestly one of the worst and most unorganised airports I’ve ever been in. Everything is organised so poorly and nothing is in order. You are walking in circles looking for your gate and other amenities. Every shop and bar in the airport is over priced and just not customer friendly. Flight organisation is always cancelled and delayed and staff are very unhelpful. The airport is also very much away from everything but that isn’t really a fault in the system that’s just more of a location need. Would suggest flying into Brussels central airport, much better standard of quality.
