Train from Zaventem Airport to Brussels Midi train station

I want to take a train from the Brussels airport (Zaventen) to the Brussels Midi train station and then take a train to London. I cannot find a train schedule or fares from the airport to the train station.

There seem to be at least 5 trains per hour to Brussels Midi. Seeing that if you are coming in from the US, you never know how long it's going to take to go through immigration and collect your bags, it would be wise to leave enough time between your inbound flight and your departing train from Midi. The average ride takes about 21 minutes.

Also, don't forget that you need to allow AT LEAST 30 minutes at Bruxelles-Midi to check in for your Eurostar, as there will be a passport and security check prior to boarding the train.
