EUROSTAR saw passenger numbers rise by 6% to 4.6m and revenues increase by 18% to £404m during the first half of 2010. This growth is due in part to the impact of the ash cloud disruption but also reflects a strengthening of the business market and the public’s acceptance of St Pancras as a gateway to and from the United Kingdom. Over the last year there have been significant improvements with the Kings Cross and Underground interface and this should be completed in 12 months’ time. The number of international passengers is also up by 24% as visitors from the US and Australia, in particular, see travelling by Eurostar as an integral part of their European tour. Eurostar is also increasing services during the very busy August period. www.eurostar.com
