The company has announced that they establish three new lines and one updating trip.


The first one provided by ÖBB Rail Cargo Group is the direct connection from Giengen in the east of Baden-Württemberg in Germany to Cerkezköy, about 80 km west of Istanbul. So it connects Western European economic centers with the countries of Southern and South-Eastern Europe.

The second one is a high-speed connection between Bratislava–Istanbul with one round trip per week.

And Bratislava–Köseköy line with two round trips per week connects the Asian part of Turkey with Europe through the Marmaray Tunnel. With this connection, the company expanded its logistics offer to and from Turkey with a transit time of just under six days for Eastern Europe (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, and West Hungary).

These connections replace the service from Sopron to Istanbul also run through the Marmaray Tunnel.

Updating current connections

Curtici–Istanbul will increase from two to three round trips per week. Budapest–Istanbul continues to operate with four round trips per week. With three round trips per week, this line creates a direct connection to Halkali, the most important international freight terminal in Turkey.
