Connector: A contemporary range of shops, restaurants and bars

March 5, 2015

The design of Connector is centred around the passenger. Brussels Airport wants to offer passengers a unique experience during their time at the airport. This of course involves providing a unique selection of shops, restaurants and bars. Connector caters for everyone!

You can get a bite to eat or a drink, buy presents for family and friends, shop your favourite brands at great value prices or simply relax while you're waiting to board. With a focus on Belgian specialities and personal service, every visit to Connector offers an authentic experience.

A wide boulevard leads you through a large walk-through shop, with a variety of retail outlets on either side. This shop is the biggest fragrance and cosmetics shop in Belgium, but you can buy fashion and accessories, jewellery and watches here as well.

Our staff will give you personal advice so you can find exactly what you're looking for, at bargain prices. And there are many other advantages to shopping at the airport. The shops are open seven days a week, and you'll find unique gift-wrap packaging here.

If you'd like to take a piece of Belgium with you on your journey, this is also the place to buy Belgian specialities like beer and chocolate.

The Belgian Chocolate House sells the premium Belgian brands, such as Godiva, Neuhaus and Corné Port-Royal, especially for travellers, at the lowest prices.

More chocolate is sold at Brussels Airport than anywhere else. No less than 815 tonnes of it are handed over the counter every year. That's 93 kilos an hour, making Brussels Airport the biggest chocolate shop in the world!

Maybe you're looking for luxury fashion brands instead? Connector offers a contemporary mix, including Hugo Boss, Longchamps, Tumi, Ralph Lauren, Zegna, Ferragamo and Delvaux, at duty free prices. Which means there's nowhere cheaper in Belgium to buy them than at the airport. Or discover Victoria’s Secret or Coach – the airport is the only place you'll find them in the country. 

The shops also offer an extensive range of quality brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Desigual, Mc Gregor, Sarah Pacini, River Woods and Massimo Dutti.

If you fancy getting something to eat in a relaxing environment, check out one of the stylish restaurants. Black Pearls doesn't just serve the tastiest fish and seafood, and freshly prepared sushi – it also has an exclusive view of the runways.

Perhaps you'd prefer a meat stew and fries? If so, Belgorama is the place to be! The new self-service restaurant, decked out in Expo 58 style, serves traditional Belgian dishes, like chicken vol-au-vents and delicious Belgian waffles.

For lovers of cakes and pastries there is premium patisserie Debailleul in Blend in Brussels, and of course there are various bars and cafes offering a wide selection of food and drink.

By opening Connector, Brussels Airport is creating a new and unique environment in which the aim is to treat passengers to Belgian specialities and novelties, exclusive products and fine cuisine. A place to enjoy and relax.

And Connector is just the beginning: in the coming months, Brussels Airport will be renovating the shopping areas in Pier A and Pier B as well, to offer passengers even more shopping experiences.
