Belgium December visit- advice

Hi fellow travellers
I am travelling during Christmas period.
Day 1 - Dec 22- Land into Brussels ( 8am) – Ghent sigh see ( Airbnb in Ghent)
Day 2 – Dec 23 - Bruges sight see – ( Airbnb in Ghent)
Day 3 – Dec 24 – Antwerp sight see - ( Airbnb in Ghent)
Day 4 – Dec 25 – Brussel sight see ( Airbnb in Brussels)
Day 5 – Dec 26 – ( fly out of Brussels airport (10 am)

I have a dilemma, if I want to continue my stay in Ghent and go to Brussel Airport directly from Ghent the morning of Dec 26 and not change my Airbnb for 1 night - Is it feasible or advisable ? What are the available options to get to BRU from Ghent - taxi or train around 6 or 7 am? I have a 10 am flight from Brussel to Zurich.

The official schedules have not been released for trains after Dec 8, but currently there are trains at 5:10 and 5:28 that get you there in 1 hour an 19 minutes with a train change at Brussels Nord. I wouldn't want to cut it any closer than that.

The website for the Belgium train system has been shared with you on your similar post. You can look up the train schedules here to see the many choices you’ll have. https://www.belgiantrain.be/en It will be much less expensive to take a train between Ghent and the Brussels airport if that’s what you decide to do.
