ISTANBUL SERVICE – STOP OF THE TURKEY PROJECT by the end of March 2017 Dear Business Partner! We do regret to inform you that with the 31.03.2017 METRANS will – at this moment – temporarily – stop the operation of the line HALKALI – DUNAJSKÁ STREDA and vice versa. Since the year 2013 METRANS was operating the Turkey project with much success on the number of departures, with changes of the operation from Halkali to Cerkezköy and as the first one moving back to the renewed reopened Terminal Halkali in Istanbul. HALKALI terminal should be operable starting on 19th of November 2015.

Thanks to the continuous support of you, our customers we could achieve a lot of departures on that corridor, we managed together the move from road to rail by lot of businesses.
From the middle of January of this year the transport corridor is fighting with difficulties as the migrants and the security of the transportation which is requesting from all the involved parties special actions which make the transportation mostly non effective.
We are very sorry to bring this decision, but at this moment we are not anymore in position to offer a service where we cannot guarantee reasonable transit time, the quality you have been used. The prolonged transit times, the additional controls are making the transportation more expensive than is acceptable. Especially the refugee crisis and its further development is our biggest concern and despite the very good cooperation of all the partner railways and also authorities in all countries from Turkey to Slovakia we are not able to offer the transportation which would be effective and safe.
Our customer service team is ready to answer your entire question, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Till 31.03.2017 we will keep the used schedule not to cause delays or obstacles in the transport chain ordered from your clients.
Yours sincerely,
METRANS /Danubia/, a.s.
