ILSA-viajeros-maleta

The liberalisation of the railway market is the last European economic sector to, finally, open

We are witnessing the birth of a new paradigm with more environmental awareness, the acute economic recession arising from the pandemic and the price of petrol are defining the coming changes.

On the other hand, numerous technological advances and the digitalisation of economies influence and modify  people’s mobility  behaviour. In a more and more monitored society, many citizens seek to feel free in their mobility.

After the liberalisation of rail transport, which will come into effect on 14 December 2020, ILSA has been selected by the Administrador de Infraestructuras Ferroviarias (Administrator of Rail Infrastructure, ADIF) to compete on the entire high-speed network.
