The five newest trains of GySEV have a name: Ventus. The trains were recently delivered by Siemens. As of 05.09.2016, they are used for revenue-earning services in Austria, Hungary, and Slovakia. On a working day, all five 3-car trains are needed. They reach Vienna, Bratislava-Petrzalka/Pressburg-Engerau, Deutschkreutz, Wulkaprodersdorf, Pamhagen and Fertöszentmiklos/St. Nikolaus am See.
