Update on departures from Paris Gare du Nord

The trade unions representing the Douane (French customs officers) and the French government reached an agreement in May 2019 regarding industrial action carried out back in March and April 2019. We are now happy to update that the departure experience has continued to improve significantly and that services are back to normal for most travel times.

However, until there is a full return to normal service levels, we would advise that at peak times:Thursday evening (5-7pm), Friday evening (5pm-7pm), Sunday evening (5pm-7pm) and Monday morning (6am-9am)  Business Premier and Carte Blanche passengers arrive 20 to 30 minutes before departure and all other passengers arrive 45 minutes prior. 

We will continue to provide further updates in due course.
