The third service, which starts on 11th June 2019, comes in direct response to customer demand following the popularity of Eurostar’s new route to the Netherlands which launched in April last year.
The increased frequency provides travellers with more travel options, making it easier for passengers to choose the environmental benefits of high-speed rail over flying. 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.
Mike Cooper, Chief Executive, Eurostar, said: “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 whilst offering more choice and flexibility to travellers connecting between these European cities.”
Highly competitive fares will continue to start at £35 one way, with journey times from just 3hrs 13mins to Rotterdam and 3hrs 52mins to Amsterdam.
