Very nice news, Patrice!

So the SN flights between BRU and CDG will probably come to an end?

as far as I know, the TGV stops in Brussels-midi and there you have to change trains.

regards, SN-A330
I would rather be flying...

SN-A330: following the new agreement, a Thalys will stop in the BRU airport train station (under the departure terminal) and will go to Paris Nord.

AF currently put's it's code on (I believe) 5 Thalys trains from Brussel Midi to CDG.

Patrice: maybe because the railways need modifications for the Thalys? Otherwise I have no clue...

Guys,

It will be a direct link between Brussels Airport and Paris Nord Railwaystation.
Nobody must change trains in Brussels South station. The trip will take between 1h50 and 2h (weekdays versus weekend)

Is TGV running with airliners-flight-numbers (like codeshare)???
In Germany Deutsche Bahn has codeshare-agreements with Lufthansa, American Airlines and TAP Air Portugal. Also 80 airlines have so-called Rail&Fly-agreement: free or cheap train-tickets within Germany after arriving from intl. flight. Cool idea, easy use, good opportunity to continue travel within Germany and looking relaxed out of ICE-windows, flying on Level Zero.

Great news in my view ! Added to the announcement that 2d quarter has been profitable for SNBA, we are not far from an Historical Day for Belgian Aviation I think  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

What's next? Pressclub, any other interesting announcement soon?
