However a spokesperson for RegioJet, Aleš Ondrůj, declined to comment.

“For the time being, we will not comment on the information about the operation of our trains from December 2016,” Ondrůj said, as quoted by TASR. “We will introduce new routes in the upcoming period.”

The reason behind the carrier’s expansion could be the fact that RegioJet head Radim Jančura is aware oft the Brno traffic situation, the needs of travellers and the possibilities for further expansion of the firm, according to Desana Mertinková of Railway revue.
