Thalys wants to respond to the wishes of its passengers. As of 2019, there will, therefore, be a direct connection from the Netherlands to Charles de Gaulle Airport and Disneyland Paris. These new destinations will also offer better connections to the East and South of France, such as Lyon and Nice.
With a frequency of 12 trains a day, Thalys allows you to travel directly to Paris almost every hour from € 35 (one-way). Recently, more carriages have been used during rush hours. In 2019, that number will increase so that 750 passengers can travel to Paris on one train.
Thalys is extremely fast; with a speed of up to 300 km per hour, and a journey time of 3 hours and 18 minutes from Amsterdam to Paris. Increasing the speed of travel from the Netherlands to France can be achieved by improving the infrastructure between Antwerp and Brussels. This will require substantial investments, but it does offer opportunities to give an extra impulse to train journeys to the south.
