Rail transport may be among the profitable industries in the post-pandemic world. According to experts, train travel will increase enormously. There are several reasons for the optimistic expectations for the sector. In the first place, the trend is to travel slowly and environmentally, and trains are the green alternative to air travel, as they are more environmentally friendly, experts say.
The second and main reason is that tourists, at least for the first few years after the pandemic, will prefer closer destinations due to the ever-changing restrictions of international travel, according to research and analysis company GlobalData. According to experts, high-speed train lines between major European capitals such as Paris and London, for example, have decreased the interest in flights on this route.
