Trenitalia’s Frecciarossa high-speed trains to connect Milan with Paris by the end of the year

Monday, 06 December 2021 10:31

Trenitalia’s CEO Luigi Corradi called the new Milan-Paris route "a dream that will come true – adding - and we are working to bring the Frecciarossa 1000 to Spain by the end of 2022." In Paris the route will be managed by Trenitalia France, formerly Thello. "It will be a start-up - explains Corradi - and the service can be increased according to the results." The route will be via Turin in high-speed, and then continue to Lyon and Paris on the French network. 

Regional services are approaching pre-Covid levels

The non-stop high-speed Frecce trains have been reinstated, while regional trains, with 1.1 million trips per day, are approaching the 1.6 million pre-Covid level. Presenting the new winter schedule Corradi explained that "more than 230 Frecce will connect the big cities, with 6 more Frecciarossa per day between Rome and Milan, and 4 non-stop Frecciarossa Milan-Rome services.”  

“Intercity trains pass through tourist spots and serve major cultural events”

There will also be "more connections to the South with greater frequency, direct trains and integrated train+bus solutions to reach ports and airports throughout Italy". In the 2021-2022 winter timetable 94 Intercity trains will be "offering a capillary service with maximum comfort even where the Frecce do not arrive" and there are 24 Intercity Night trains. The aim is "to connect medium-sized towns and provincial capitals, passing through tourist spots and serving major cultural events throughout Italy." 

New destinations are also planned for the Regional unit with its 6,800 daily trains, to "visit places of high cultural and scenic value, also with your own bike thanks to the more than 20,000 bicycle slots available every day, and with recharging points for e-bikes."  In 2022 the regional fleet, 50% of which already has new trains, will see the arrival of a further 105 new trains, all of which will cut energy consumption by 30%.
