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.
