Passengers will need to allow extra time for these new checks. Full details (in French) from lefigaro.fr http://www.lefigaro.fr/societes/2015/12/16/20005-20151216ARTFIG00173-securite-les-premiers-portiques-entrent-en-gare-jeudi.php 17th December 2015 at 13:58 #490991 AMcWhirterParticipant Dutch travel media just reported that the security checks will also be taking place at Lille Europe (the city’s high-speed train station) for Thalys passengers. Reports say that the checks themselves should not take more than 20 mins. But will that be possible in practice, given that Paris Nord is a busy terminus ? Zakenreis news is in Dutch only.
