Reinforced security measures at Brussels-Midi, Antwerp-Central, Liege-Guillemins, Paris Nord and Lille Europe
Latest update: 21 December
Security measures are being reinforced at Brussels-Midi, Antwerp-Central, Liège-Guillemins, Paris Nord and Lille Europe railway stations.
In order to facilitate security controls, international train travellers are kindly requested to keep their identity card and travel documents at hand at all times. Thalys passengers are requested to present themselves on the platform at least 20 minutes prior to the departure time.
According to the request by the French government, security gates have been installed on the Thalys platforms at Paris Nord station and in Hall 1 at Lille Europe station. Thalys passengers are invited, especially if they have luggage, to arrive at the platform around 20 minutes before departure in order to pass through the gates and have their luggage scanned without rush. In case of identity controls by the national authorities, passengers are kindly requested to present a valid ID. Please notice that due to enhanced security measures, Thalys 9975 and 9995 departing from Lille will leave a few minutes earlier than initially scheduled (Thalys 9975 will depart from Lille Europe at 19:07 instead of 19:09, and Thalys 9995 will depart from Lille Europe at 21:04 instead of 21:07).
