Belgium’s Diabolo line due to open soon

  • News from UIC members

Infrabel, the Belgian railway infrastructure manager, has done extensive work to improve access to the existing Brussels Airport station by train.

When this Diabolo project is completed, Brussels Airport will have one of the world’s best airport railway services.

Diabolo links Brussels Airport to the major arteries of the Belgian railway network as well as several European cities via the international routes between Frankfurt-Liège-Brussels-Paris and Amsterdam-Antwerp-Brussels-Paris. Following completion of the Belgian high speed network in 2009, the Diabolo project will further enhance Belgium’s position at the centre of the European network.

The official opening of the Diabolo railway complex will take place on 7 June 2012 in Brussels, and will be attended by his Majesty King Albert II.
