SBB to buy 32 FLIRT trains

01 Sep 2008

SWITZERLAND: The board of Swiss Federal Railways has exercised options with Stadler for a further 32 FLIRT trainsets, to be used on services in Vaud, Ticino and Basel from 2010.

The SFr418·6m order includes 19 FLIRT units for RER Vaudois services from Lausanne, and two trainsets for Regio S-Bahn Basel route S1 from Basel to Frick and Laufenburg.

The 19 FLIRTs currently used on TILO services in Ticino will be joined by a further 11 to enable an expansion of cross-border services to Italy, including a direct link to Milano Malpensa airport.
