Since the first AVE came into circulation 30 years ago, Renfe has transported more than 464 million passengers on its high-speed trains. That April 21, 1992, which went down in the history of transport in Spain, the AVE began to circulate with a fleet of 18 trains that traveled at 300 km/h along a line 471 kilometers long, which crossed five cities.
Thirty years later, a high-speed network has been woven that has made it possible to configure the network of lines in corridors where the company provides its services. Renfe currently has a fleet of 229 trains that run over 3,726 kilometers of high-speed rail on 13 lines passing through 57 cities. In this way, more than 70% of the Spanish population has Renfe high-speed services, and the AVE has become one of the world’s benchmarks.
