FTE A Passenger Traffic, 09.01.-12.01.2017
The main objectives of this first conference in 2017 were on the one hand to harmonize the international offering concepts for the timetable 2018 (10.12.2017 – 08.12.2018) between the railway undertakings (RU) and on the other hand to prepare the requests for feasibility studies of the international passenger traffic, which has to be submitted to the Infrastructure Managers (IM) until 16 January 2017 by the Path Coordination System (PCS). The IM carry out the path feasibility studies from 17 January till 13 March 2017. Following the outcomes of these path feasibility studies will serve as the basis for the coordination conference FTE B from 20 to 23 March 2017.
The IM acted at the FTE A conference as advisors and thus they gained an overview of the capacity requirements to be expected of the RU for the timetable 2018.
During the coordination conference FTE A the participants had the possibility to be supported by Mr. Máté Bak (RNE) in all PCS matters.
