Strike in Belgium threatens travel
January 26th, 2012 by elisa

It’s unlucky for those of you planning to go to Belgium on Monday (30th January), as there is a planned general strike which will disrupt travel services. The strike of public and private sector workers coincides with the EU summit in Brussels.

Ryanair is advising passengers to check its website for information as it might have to cancel all flights to and from Brussels Charleroi Airport.

“If we are forced to cancel flights a list of affected flights will be published on our homepage on Friday 27th January,” it said.

Eurostar announced this morning that services to and from Brussels will be cancelled from 22:00 CET on 29th January to 22:00 CET on 30th January. Trains will only run to and from Lille Europe station, but there will be a limited coach service from there to Brussels Midi stations, however these are likely to be very busy.

Eurostar will allow exchanges free of charge regardless of ticket conditions, but subject to availability.
