Brussels South Charleroi Airport (BSCA), also called Charleroi Airport, ( CRL) is located in Charleroi precisely in Gosselies, 46 kilometres (29 mi) from central Brussels, in Wallonia (Belgium).
Brussels Charleroi Airport (Aéroport de Charleroi Bruxelles-Sud) is a smaller airport than Zaventem and located to the north of the industrial city of Charleroi. Various low-cost airlines use this airport for departures to popular holiday destinations.
The airport is accessible by the highway from Brussels, Liège or Lille. The GPS address of the new terminal is: Rue d'Heppignies - 6043 RANSART.
By coach from Brussels
Brussels : the coach stop is rue de France, on the side of the "Bruxelles Midi" (Brussel Zuid) railway Station (rather far down the right side when looking at the front of the station).
There is a coach departing from Brussels at about one hour interval from 04.30 to 20.30 - and from CRL the same between 08.30 and 23.30.
At Brussels, you pay on board; at CRL, at the desk near the bus stop, outside the terminal:
Return tickets are available only at CRL and on the net, not on the bus at Brussels.

Sights in Brussels:
Grand Palace- For one of Europe's finest urban views, head straight to Brussels' magnificent central square, Grand Place. It boasts the country's best baroque guildhalls, the beautiful Hôtel de Ville (Town Hall), museums, pavement cafés, chocolate shops and intimate cellar restaurants - a combination that lures visitors in droves.
Grand Place Guildhalls- The splendour of the Grand Place is due largely to the antique frame of Grand Place guildhalls. Each merchant guild erected its own building, which is named (no street numbers back then) and adorned with gilded statues and elaborate symbols related to its trade.
Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique- This museum houses Belgium's premier collections of ancient and modern art and is particularly well endowed with works by Pieter Breugel the Elder, Rubens and the Belgian surrealists.
Musée d'Art Ancien- To view the collections of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts chronologically, start with the Musée d'Art Ancien. Begin with the Flemish Primitives, including works by Rogier Van der Weyden, Dirk Bouts, Hans Memling and Gerard David.
Parc du Cinquantenaire- Parc du Cinquantenaire was built during Léopold II's reign. It's best known for its cluster of museums - art, history, military and motor vehicles - that house an incredible 350,000 artefacts from all continents.
