The train connection will be operated under the name SC Slovenská strela (SC Slovak missile) by the Czech and Slovak railway companies České dráhy and Železničná spoločnosť Slovensko.

The new Pendolino connection will be 22 minutes faster than the current fastest connection, the Euro City Slovenská strela.
