    According to the website Brussels Airport provides drinking fountains near the sanitary facilities. You will find six of them in Pier A and 3 in Pier B Departures level.

    However someone has contacted us to say “there are no drinking fountains near the restrooms airside (near all the restaurants). Probably on purpose so you spend €3 on 250ml water – which is highway robbery.”

    If you are flying from B gates, there is a water fountain outside the restrooms between Gates B7 and B9.

    Free Tap Water In Belgian Restaurants

    I asked Brussels Airport to ditch their 1euro bottles of water in single use plastic in march this year. The proceeds of the 1euro bottles were going to charity so that passengers were led to believe they were doing good by buying bottled water. The charities benefiting were WWF and UNESCO, two charities fighting plastic pollution who both actually advocate taking a reusable water bottle with you at all times “even on holiday”.   I asked Brussels Airport to ditch the entire stand and replace them with a row of refilling stations purpose built for bottles (i.e.not an arc type water fountain). I asked them to sell reusable water bottles with their logo and give the proceeds to charity and keep the donation box.

    And they said yes! It will be installed in January 2020.

    I asked Brussels Airport to ditch their prominent stand “Water With a Cause” after security that sells 1 euro bottles of water. the proceeds of the 1 euro bottles go to charities such as WWF and UNESCO which are active in the fight against plastic pollution. Although there are 7 fountains in Brussels Airport they are extremely hard to find, in the corners of the entrance to the toilets and are frequently out of order. I asked them to create a very prominent row of bottle refilling stations instead, immediately after screening and also sell reusable water bottles with the airport logo and the profits going to the same charities. I also asked for them to keep the donation box, so that passengers could donate directly to the charities rather than contributing to the problems they are fighting.
    They said yes!
    The new bottle refilling stations will be installed in January 2020; In the meantime, they have removed the link between donating to charity and buying single-use plastic, so the stand – although prominent – just sells 1 euro bottles of water.
    As you know taking water on board airplanes is imperative especially in summer and the tiny cups in single-use plastic given on-board only contribute even more to our load of plastic. We believe this will save tens of thousands of single-use plastic bottles of water every week. The Sustainability Team at Brussels Airport have been marvelous!

    Well done Sarah and Brussels Airport, nice to know that some airports do listen to their customers  –  Clive

    There is a water fountain between gates A54 and A56. It’s tucked between the toilet entrances.

    I didn’t see any water fountains on either the A or B gate concourses but there were a couple of stations with water bottles you could take for a 1 Euro honesty box donation. There was one on the left after security on the way to the A gates and one after passport control and the shops and cafes on the way to the B gates.
