High-speed rail service Eurostar has started selling tickets for a third daily service from London to Rotterdam and Amsterdam that will launch this summer.
Beginning 11 June, the third daily service follows customer demand on the new route, which launched in April 2018. Eurostar says it will bring the capacity on the route to the equivalent of 12 flights a day.
The new service departs London at 1104 Monday to Friday and arrives in Amsterdam at 1611 local time. Eurostar says the journey time on the route is around three hours and 13 minutes to Rotterdam and three hours and 52 minutes to Amsterdam.
Eurostar claims its Amsterdam service results in 80 per cent less carbon per passenger than a typical flight.
Mike Cooper, CEO of Eurostar, said: “Our new route to the Netherlands has been met with strong demand from 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.”
