LSG Group Expands its Train Business by Winning TGV Lyria as a New Costumer
Neu-Isenburg, Germany – The LSG Group has acquired a new important customer: TGV Lyria, a train service that connects Paris with Switzerland’s major cities, including Geneva, Lausanne, Basel, Bern and Zurich.
The LSG Group will take over their catering services in two phases. The first one will take place by the end of the summer with the existing service concept. The second phase will take place by the end of this year and will entail the introduction of a new catering concept that will be characterized by the “Swissness” and the “Frenchness” of the products offered onboard.
“This customer win reconfirms our decision to make train services part of LSG’s core businesses and growth areas in Europe,” said Lars Redeligx, Chief Commercial Officer Europe at LSG Group. “Our success is based on an in-depth understanding by our team of what the train operator and passengers expect and need. Our new concept itself is outstanding, innovative, customized and meets the targeted cost structure.”

The company currently services iDTGV in France, Eurostar and Thalys in Belgium, Deutsche Bahn (Intercity 2) in Germany, Snälltaget in Sweden, Virgin in the United Kingdom and L-Exspresis in Latvia.
