These include positions for drivers, train crew, and catering and cleaning staff.

OUIGO España made its first journey between Madrid and Barcelona on Friday, 7 May 2021. The inauguration was attended by Spanish Transport Secretary Pedro Saura, ADIF President Isabel Pardo de Vera, SNCF Voyageurs CEO Christophe Fanichet, OUIGO España Managing Director Hélène Valenzuela, and Voyages SNCF Managing Director Alain Krakovitch.
