(NOT recommended - worst one of Antwerp airport transfers) Taxi rides to Antwerp city centre take about 45 minutes. This option is very costly - there is usually a standard rate (60 € - the last time I checked) to get you to Antwerp. Once in the city the taximeter can be switched on. Taxis are available in front of the arrivals hall. Licensed taxis can be recognized by the blue and yellow emblem.
