The SNCF wants to make you want to prefer the train… by taking the plane

21


If you are about to take off by air from Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle or Orly airport, you will surely have to get to the airport by train. Although the “Train + Air” service has existed for many years, it does not completely make life easier for users. Good news: the SNCF is launching the possibility of obtaining your double ticket directly online.

The simplified Train + Air offer

For 28 years now, you have been able to obtain a double “Train + Air” ticket to facilitate your transit to one of the two Parisian airports. If 300,000 people use it each year, the service had a major obstacle: its non-digitalization. But that is now ancient history since the SNCF allows you to take advantage of this service online.

Indeed, until now, users of the “Train + Air” service had to collect their SNCF ticket at the station when getting off the plane. We have experienced more practice. But for the past few months, the SNCF has been experimenting with this new digital ticket system with Air France. According to the spokesperson for the SNCF, who confided in AFP, the success is there. As a result, the system is launched with great fanfare with 12 partner airlines from November 16.

Thus, if you have to combine travel by TGV and by plane and you go through Orly or Charles de Gaulle airports, everything will be simplified. Farewell to the constraint of the physical ticket, the SNCF offers a fully dematerialized combined ticket to save you time (and energy). Even better: the SNCF takes care of travelers if their train or plane is late.

For its launch, SNCF joined forces with airlines such as Air France, Emirates, Air Caraïbes, Vietnam Airlines and Air Transit. Depending on the evolution of this service, we imagine that other companies will join them.

As for the cities concerned by the digitized “Train + Air” service, there are many of them. There are 18 French stations, including Lille, Lyon, Nantes and Strasbourg, as well as the Brussels station. Travelers will thus be able to reach Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle airport or Orly airport by TGV more easily

It was time for this service to benefit from a little facelift since there is a real demand. Indeed, 3 million travelers take the train each year to reach the two Parisian airports. The SNCF is therefore rather confident and hopes to sell 600,000 digital combined “Train + Air” tickets in the next five years.
