THE first Bombardier Traxx MS2E locomotive for RegioJet entered passenger service with the Czech open-access operator on May 16, working the 17.48 Prague Hlavní Nádraží - Ostrava service.

A second locomotive is expected to make its maiden commercial run with the operator on May 17.

RegioJet awarded Bombardier a contract in 2017 to supply eight of the locomotives, with an option for 20 more. RegioJet is the first operator to use Traxx locomotives for passenger services in the Czech Republic.

In a addition to the Prague - Ostrava route, the fleet will be deployed on international services from the Czech capital to Košice, Bratislava and Vienna.
