    You only need to change once, at Bruxelles-Nord, and the whole journey would take 1h37 minutes. Direct trains to Ostende leave the Gare du Nord at 56 minutes past every hour.
    As it is said to cost €80 by taxi from Brussels to Charleroi Airport, which takes 1 hour, I would guess you can expect a cost of at least €100 for a taxi from Brussels Airport to Ostende. For a quote you could e-mail Ostende taxi company taxi.moermans@skynet.be, or just ask your hotel/a taxi company when you get to Ostende. If you want to order one from the airport itself, see brusselsairport.be/en/parkin... (note that by limousine they merely mean chauffeur-driven car).
    For your return flight, if this is intercontinental, you need to be at the airport at 08:15, one option would be to travel to Brussels the night before and stay overnight near the airport, the closest (though undoubtedly not the cheapest) option being the Sheraton right at the airport.

    It is perfectly possible to remain in Oostende and get to the airport at 8h15 in the morning. If you take the trains at 6h17 you'll be at the airport at 7:56. See www.nmbs.be for schedules. Train will quite probably be faster at that time of the day, and certainly will be cheaper.
