Hi and welcome to my flight report!

This time I will be covering my journey back home from Belgium. As I booked my trip so late, the only option I had which suited my wallet was to fly with Ryanair. I used the non-stop service between Brussels-Charleroi Airport (CRL) and Stockholm-Skavsta Airport (NYO).

After spending a weekend catching up with some old friends in the small town of Waterloo, mostly famous for being the stage of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, where Napoleon Bonaparte was defeated, it was time for me to get back home to Sweden.

My friend kindly drove me the 50 kilometers to Charleroi Airport, and after saying goodbye I went inside the airport terminal an hour before departure. As I was not able to check-in myself at Ryanair's website due to the travel agency I used were idiots, I was seated in the very last row. The flight was packed to the last seat, but we managed to depart on scheduled time. The flight took a little bit more than two hours, as we flew over Germany and Denmark before arriving to Skavsta Airport. As I flew with Ryanair, nothing was of course complimentary, but I used my last euros to buy myself a refreshing Pepsi.

Upon arrival it was dark outside which made it hard to take any good pictures. We landed on runway 08 at scheduled time, and after buying myself snus I went outside to take the airport bus to Stockholm Central Station, where I got picked up by my mother.

I hope you enjoyed my trip report!

Conclusion

You could say that Ryanair did their job, taking me from A to B. Both airports are located far away from the cities that they name their airports, but I assume that it is cheaper for them to use these smaller airports further away. This flight was a standard Ryanair intra-European journey, where you get what you pay for. I am always trying to avoid flying with Ryanair when travelling, sadly this was the only option this time. In the future, I will continue to try to avoid flying with them.
