Ouigo will appear on March 1 at 9:00 a.m. up to 1.7 million new tickets that start at a price of 9 euros per adult to travel on its high-speed trains. These tickets can be used between July 11 and December 9, 2023.
Since its departure to Spain on May 10, 2021, Ouigo has already transported almost 5 million passengers on its two operating lines to date, Madrid-Barcelona, with stops in Zaragoza and Tarragona, and Madrid-Valencia. It currently offers five daily round-trip frequencies between Madrid-Puerta de Atocha-Almudena Grandes and Barcelona-Sants and 3 between Madrid-Chamartín-Clara Campoamor and Valencia-Joaquín Sorolla.
Ouigo expands its lines to three
The milestone that the company will meet within the next of its business plan in Spain will be to connect the cities of Madrid and Alicante, with a stop in Albacete, a route that will have 2 round-trip frequencies and will be equivalent to 4 journeys a day. Subsequently, it plans to reach Andalusia with 5 round trips (10 journeys) to Seville, Malaga and Cordoba.
“These 1.7 million new tickets represent one more step towards our objective of democratizing the use of high speed in Spain and that travelers who previously could not afford it opt for the most sustainable mode of travel that exists, which contaminates 80 and 50 times less than the plane and the car, respectively”, explained its Sales and Marketing Director, Federico Pareja.
Imitate Renfe’s proposal
On the other hand, Renfe launched a campaign on Monday to put up for sale the 15th anniversary of the first AVE train on this line.
The first circulation of the Madrid-Barcelona AVE occurred on February 20, 2008, when it began with an offer of 17 frequencies per direction, which has gradually increased as a result of demand until reaching the current 54 daily connections.
