The Brussels Airport
Brussels, the capital city of Belgium, is provided with air services by the Brussels Airport. The airport is located a little under seven miles from the north-eastern edge of the city, with part of the airport in the town of Zaventem and the rest in Machelen. Dozens of airlines operate out of the airport, including AirBaltic, Brussels Airlines, Alitalia, Jetairfly, and United Airlines. To reserve seats on one of the many airlines using the Brussels airport, travellers can use ebookers online.
Parking at Brussels Airport
Patrons of the airport who choose to drive in for their flights will find plenty of parking spaces available for long-term parking. The best daily prices can be found in the airport's Q-Park, where rates begin at €16 a day for the first two days, and then drops in price depending on the length of the stay. For example, fourteen days of parking in the Q-Park is only €140. While the Q-Park is not located in the airport terminal, shuttle service is provided from the lot to the terminal for the convenience of airport customers.
Transportation to the Airport
There are several modes of transportation available to reach the airport from the city centre. Bus service is provided from the city at a minimum price of €0.30, with a bus stop located just one floor below the arrivals hall. Train service is also available, with up to four trains an hour providing transportation between Brussels Central station and the airport. For those looking for a more convenient trip, taxis are available at a cost of €45.
A Meal Before Leaving
Brussels is well known for its delicious food, so having a final meal at the airport before leaving may be a good way to pass the time before a flight. Wine connoisseurs can enjoy a delicious plate of fresh tapas with the vintage of their choice at Beaudevin, while beer lovers can enjoy a delicious Belgian beer and a sandwich or snack at Belgian Beer Café. Those looking for a quick meal before leaving Brussels can order from Pizza Hut Express or simply enjoy a snack and a tasty beverage at the airport's Starbucks.
Flying to Cluj
As the second largest city in Romania, Cluj is known for its rich history and grand academic institutions. Flights into the area land at Cluj-Napoca International Airport, the main airport for the Transylvania region of Romania. The airport is located within the city limits, approximately five miles from downtown Cluj. Wizz Air and Lufthansa are the two main airlines that serve the airport, along with several charter services.
Transportation to Cluj
Once you've landed, you have several options to get from the airport to the city centre. If you've rented a car through ebookers, eight agencies have counters on-site to assist you in getting your vehicle. Taxi services are available outside the terminal and fares start at RON 1.70. Bus line 8 serves the airport and arrives at ten minute intervals Monday through Friday. Shuttle service is also available through some hotels.
Weather in Cluj
The warmest months in Cluj are from May through September. Daily highs can reach 24°C on many days, so short sleeves can be more comfortable. You might want to bring a light jacket, because evening temperatures can drop into single digit temperatures. Temperatures in December and January drop to an average low of -7°C, making gloves a perfect travel accessory.
What to Do and When to Go
Summer is the busy tourist season for Cluj, and finding a hotel room or cheap airfare during this season might be difficult, so go to ebookers early to assess your options. If you visit the area in the fall months of September and October, you might be able to grab cheaper rates. On clear days while you're in the city, take a one-mile hike from the city centre to the Botanical Gardens and spend some time viewing over 10,000 varieties of plants. The city is steeped in history, so no trip to Cluj should end without visiting the birthplace of Hungarian King Matthias Corvin and the fourteenth-century St. Michael's Church.
