Malaysia Airlines partners with high-speed TGV trains in France

Malaysia Airlines passengers heading to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport on the carrier’s flagship Airbus A380 can now connect onwards on high-speed TGV trains to destinations such as Lyon, Marseille and Strasbourg on a single airline ticket.

Jetsetters will be able to check-in at their first port of call – be it a TGV railway station or with Malaysia Airlines at the airport – and receive their boarding passes and tickets for the full journey.

As is the norm with connecting airline tickets, if the traveller books a combined Malaysia Airlines and TGV ticket but misses their onward connection due to a delay on the first leg, they will be reaccommodated onto a later service at no charge.

That applies in both directions – whether connecting from a flight onto the TGV or from the high-speed train onwards to a Malaysia Airlines flight.

TGV connections are available from and to the following train stations: Aix-en-Provence, Angers-St-Laud, Avignon, Bordeaux St Jean, Champagne-Ardenne, Le Mans, Lille, Lorraine, Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier, Nantes, Nîmes, Poitiers, Rennes, St-Pierre-des-Corps, Strasbourg, Toulon and Valence.

    Fantastic. I think more airlines and intercity and long distance rail franchises should partner - extending each others reach and the options for travellers.

    There should be more and more of this, especially in Europe. Out of interest, does BA even let you bundle a Heathrow Express into your airfare to LHR? If not this is the very basics and they should!

    This is a great idea. I believe Qatar have been doing it for some time, as well.
