Antwerp International Airport or Deurne Airport is located 2km south-east of the city,and is home to Cityjet Airlines who are now operated by Air France.Regular flights to London City Airport and Manchester Airport account for over 60% of passengers.Due to its short runway length(just over 1500 metres) it is not possible to operate larger aircraft at the airport.Because this limits the growth of the airport,and also due to strong runway regulations,an extension is currently in the pipeline.The airport also offers flights to Jersey several times a week.The terminal building is actually quite small with a small shop selling coffee,magazines etc and a licensed bar and currency exchange.There is no need to arrive hours early to check in, just half an hour before your flight as it doesent get very busy.On arriving i stepped off the plane,through customs,collected my bag and got a taxi in the space of ten minutes,wish that happened at every airport.Taxi takes 15 mins to Antwerp centre and costs around €12.

Antwerp has his own airport. It's rather small and there's only connection to a few other West-European cities (like London, Manchester, Milan, Rotterdam,...).
VLM is the airline who flies from Antwerp to most of these destinations. Check their website for more information: www.flyvlm.com. The addvatage is that the airport is located only 5 km away from the center of the city. You can take a bus from the central station or the Rooseveltplaats (perron4) to the airport. It's line N11. It only takes about 15 minutes to get to the airport.
Travelling to Antwerp from any...
Travelling to Antwerp from any other city in Belgium is very easy and affordable with the train. You just catch a train somewhere in Belgium and you go to Antwerp. There's a chance that you might have to change in Gent (Ghent) or Brussel (Brussels).
You can fly into Antwerp too with VLM (the Flemish Air Company) from Amsterdam and other locations in the Netherlands, Germany and the U.K. Check their website for more information (http://www.vlm-airlines.com)
You can also get into Antwerp by bus. Most buses connect Antwerp with smaller towns and villages. I mean - there are no buses between Brussels and Antwerp unless you change somewhere in the middle.
You can drive into Antwerp with your own car too - the roads are very good and it's very easy to get into the city. Finding a parking spot is more difficult though...
Just go on foot! Antwerp isn't that big and then you can see so much more! Another possiblity is taking the tram (street cars). They drive around the city very frequently and are cheap.
