Eurostar third daily to Amsterdam

A third daily direct service between London and Amsterdam and Rotterdam is being introduced by Eurostar from 11 June in response to what the company says is the popularity of its new Netherlands route which launched in April last year.

Eurostar said the increased frequency would give passengers more travel options while making it easier “to choose the environmental benefits of high-speed rail over flying”.

Chief executive Mike Cooper said: “A Eurostar journey from London to Amsterdam results in 80% less carbon per passenger than a flight, and the third service will bring Eurostar’s capacity on the route to the equivalent of 12 flights per day.”

He added: “Our new route to the Netherlands has been met with strong demand from our customers, who increasingly value the ease, comfort and seamless experience of high-speed rail.

“A third train each day will boost capacity while offering more choice and flexibility to travellers connecting between these European cities with highly-competitive fares continuing to start at £35 one way and journey times from just 3hr 13min to Rotterdam and 3hr 52min to Amsterdam.”
