The new collaboration comes as multinational rail options become an increasingly popular mode of transport across Europe for both leisure and business travellers.
Christopher Michau has been appointed as European carrier and supply director at Trainline. He will take on responsibility for the continued growth of the company’s network of rail carrier partners.
Trainline has signed a partnership with Austrian Railways, ÖBB. The deal means that Trainline now provides its customers with full coverage of Austrian rail and coach, making it the only independent digital platform to connect all the country’s carriers.
Trainline has announced its entrance into Asia through a partnership with JTB, one of the few Japan Rail appointed global wholesalers. The partnership means that Trainline leisure customers now have full access to the Japan Rail pass, which enables travel on trains across the whole of Japan through one, simple ticket and at a fixed price.
Trainline has launched a voice app built for the Google Assistant. The app allows rail travellers to talk to Trainline by asking everyday travel questions about their journey, with real-time updates on details that matter most, like timetables and delays.
