Train strikes

Unfortunately there has been announced a train strike from Thursday, June 28nd  22:00 until Saturday, June 30th 22:00.

To find out more, we recommend that you regularly consult the route planner or the app, the day before your departure time. There will be an alternative (minimal) train service. The specific schedule of these trains will be announced on Wednesday 27 nd at 22:00 and will be available on the website of NMBS, our national train company ( website NMBS) . For information on international train traffic, please visit the SNCB International website

If your train is canceled and the alternative train schedule does do not provide an acceptable solution, the only alternative is to take a taxi or rent a car at the airport.  If you could share a cab with your colleagues this would reduce the cost of course. If you would book a taxi upfront we would recommend https://airport-taxis.be/taxi-ghent-shuttle/

We hope you will be able to get to Ghent with not too much inconveniences.
