8 and 9 October: IC Netherlands will not serve Schiphol-Airport.

Due to planned engineering works on the Dutch rail network, InterCity Netherlands trains will be diverted to an alternative route between Rotterdam and Amsterdam on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 October 2022. As a consequence, they will not call at Schiphol-Airport that weekend.

Passengers to Schiphol-Airport can change trains in Rotterdam and make use of other NS (Dutch railway) operated trains to Schiphol-Airport.

Please check the adapted schedules for your journey.


Friday 11 and Saturday 12 November: no high speed trains between Brussels and France

Due to planned engineering works on the high speed line South of Brussels (HSL 1 near Halle), Thalys, TGV INOUI and Eurostar services will be interrupted between Brussels and France from Friday 11 November to Saturday 12 November at 19h00.

Passengers travelling to/from France are advised to travel on another date. If you have no other option than travelling on these days, please book your journey from or to Lille instead.


Possible security checks at Brussels-Midi, Antwerp-Central and Liège-Guillemins.

Since July 2017, security checks for passengers travelling on high-speed trains (Thalys, TGV or ICE) have been introduced in the train stations of Brussels-Midi, Antwerp-Central and Liège-Guillemins. Part of a series of measures implemented by the government, these checks are non-systematic and non-permanent and are carried out by authorised security personnel.

Taking into account that you may be subject to the above mentioned security checks, we ask that Thalys, TGV and ICE travellers anticipate a safe time margin and make their way to the platform sufficiently on time.

Travellers are also reminded that they must not be in possession of items that could endanger their fellow passengers.
