A word from the company

Thalys has a firm position on the market and we take our slogan 'Welcome to our world' to heart with regards to our employees. We give them the opportunity to thrive in a company that encourages them to take initiative and to express their ideas and points of view. Our Future Workplace project is part of this approach, with pleasant and functional rooms and a very flexible telework policy. Our colleagues from different cultures reinforce each other in many ways, all while sharing values of team spirit, a pride of belonging, social sense, and sustainability. We want to meet the increasing demand for a sustainable mobility by favouring the development of railway transportation in Europe.

About us

Our ambition? To share a strong vision on rail traffic in Europe while stimulating exchanges via direct international rail connections that are both fast and easy. To meet this challenge, we had to create a more efficient and environmentally friendly transport ecosystem, by offering better alternatives to road and air transport. Passengers’ needs are at the core of Thalys’ business, and this is reflected in our motto “Welcome to our world”. Behind the Thalys product there are more than 600 direct collaborators offering a Europe-wide service that is sustainable, fast, efficient, easy and pleasant.
