Thalys: About the company
The high-speed rail service Thalys was originally envisioned in 1987, with an agreement later signed by rail operators from Belgium, France, Germany and The Netherlands to form the company in 1993.

The number of passengers has grown steadily since the formation of Thalys, with 2013 seeing a record-breaking total of more than 6.5 million passengers travelling with the multinational rail operator.
