The operator plans to increase the number of connections to Krakow to five a day.

The private operator Leo Express has announced plans for new commercial routes. After several years it has renewed its plan to connect Prague and Bratislava via Olomouc, it intends to return to Wroclaw and significantly increase the number of connections between Prague and Krakow. This follows from official announcements. All new routes are scheduled to start in December 2024.

The Prague-Bratislava route was previously planned by Leo Express with Chinese Sirius units, but the launch never took place. Unlike České dráhy and RegioJet, Leo Express plans to operate the route via Olomouc, Přerov and on to Břeclav. According to the plan, it would run twice a day. Leo Express plans to use a train set consisting of a Siemens Vectron locomotive and conventional cars. The operator currently has neither the locomotive nor the cars.

The company is planning a significant expansion in Poland. According to the announcement, it intends to return to Wroclaw with Stadler Flirt units. Leo Express used to operate on this route but discontinued the service. It plans to run four connections a day via Lichkov. The connection to Krakow will be significantly expanded with up to five daily departures from December 2024. The current service is twice a week. The announcement of the planned service is not legally binding and the carrier is not obliged to launch the new routes.
