A dozen long-distance P trains to and from Brussels will be canceled from Monday, November 29, SNCB announced on Saturday. This decision is linked to the increase in cases of coronavirus and quarantines among company staff.
“Because of the evolution of the epidemic and the number of contaminations, SNCB is increasingly faced with cases of illness and / or quarantine among its staff, particularly within its field activities“, explains the company.”To limit the consequences for our passengers, we have already taken a series of measures, but we now observe that these unforeseeable absences of the staff assigned to the train service induce the random deletion of several trains on a daily basis.“
In order to avoid unpleasant surprises for travelers, the SNCB preferred to adapt its offer and set up a structured program for eliminating trains. Thus, the supply will be reduced until the situation allows a return to normal.
