International Cooperation: DB and PKP Intercity strengthen cooperation

  • News from UIC members

Deutsche Bahn (DB) and Polish Railways (PKP) Intercity have decided to further develop the long distance offer in passenger traffic between Germany and Poland. The agreement was made by the Presidents of the Board of both companies, Dr. Nikolaus Breuel (DB Fervekehr) and Krzysztof Celinski (PKP Intercity) during their meeting in Berlin on 19 March. From December 2010 the new multi-current/multi-system locomotive “Huzarz” from PKP Intercity will enter service on the Berlin-Warszawa Express service. The suppression of the change of locomotive at the border will reduce the journey between the German and Polish capital by 10 minutes. Furthermore on December 2 additional links will be proposed to passengers between the two cities, or a total of 8 rail passenger links between Berlin and Warsaw. (source: DB).
