Strike Belgian railway on Saturday 27 July 201927 July 2019: strike belgian railway

As a result of a strike of the Belgian Railway Company, train traffic will be disrupted in Belgium on Saturday, 27th July. Pleas note that this may have an impact on your international trip. We understand and regret that this strike may interfere with your travels. 

In order to deal with the limited number of trains running, we will put in place an alternative train service in accordance with staff availability. 

Will your train run on Saturday 27th July?
To find out, we recommend that you regularly consult the route planner  or the app, the day before your departure time.

 

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.

Feel free to contact us for further information about your journey.
