Did you know that up to 4 children (under 12) travel free with every paying passenger? No ticket is needed for accompanied children. More about Free4kids.

Practical info

When purchasing a Child Ticket and when travelling, you always need to have ID (or another official document) showing the age of the child.

No, you don't need to buy a separate Brussels Airport Supplement for children under 12 years old:

  • Children under 12 years who accompany another traveller travel for free (Free4kids) do not need any ticket at all and do not have to pay the Brussels Airport Supplement. Accompanied children can pass through the gates at Brussels Airport-Zaventem station together with another passenger.
  • If your child is travelling alone with a Kids Ticket with Brussels Airport-Zaventem as departure or arrival station, the Brussels Airport Supplement is already included in the price of the Kids Ticket. You don't need to buy a supplement separately. Your child can open the gates at Brussels Airport-Zaventem station with the barcode or QR code that appears on his Kids Ticket.
