FlixTrain planning Paris-Toulouse rail service once French rail opens to competition

    Germany‘s FlixTrain plans to launch ParisToulouse rail service (franceinfo/AFP, 19-Jun-2019). The French Authority on rail and road regulation plans to open competition on major commercial rail lines in late 2020, currently operated predominately by the SNCF and its affiliates. The service proposed by FlixTrain will last approximately 6.5 hours but will be more affordable than high speed rail.
