“The summer season is an opportunity to us. We try to meet the needs for mobility of as many people as possible, as well as their wishes for higher class transport standards. Under the Sun Trains programme, we are connecting the entire country to summer travel destinations, hoping to bring Romanians holidays that are as near to them as possible,” says CFR Calatori Director General Iosif Szentes.
