Charleroi Airport

Question

Has anyone been to Charleroi airport recently who can advise on how busy it is at the moment with the extra security etc? Im flying from there on Wednesday afternoon, arriving by car and parking in the P1 terminal car park. I've never flown from there before.

The website advises to get there 4 hours before your flight, but im just wondering if that's likely to be overkill (I only have hand luggage).

Just don't want to arrive very early expecting long queues etc., then find it goes quickly and having to sit around a small airport for hours....

Thanks for any advice!

It is better to be two hours earlier the flight, there will be passport checks during the way and prior to entering the airport. Otherwise it will be the same quick timing as usual! :)

Information from yesterday:
It took 5 minutes to go through check point on the road leading up to airport. Everything is normal after that. Two hours before flight is plenty.
