  • Eurostar launches new London-Amsterdam service

During the initial period, return journeys will connect through Brussels on a Thalys service, where passport control and security screening will be carried out.

Hoera! Eurostar will run direct trains from London to Amsterdam, from 4 April 2018. It says the market for travel between London and Paris has more than doubled as passenger increasingly choose high-speed rail over the plane.

"The launch of the London to Amsterdam service marks a historic milestone in the expansion of global high-speed rail travel, revolutionising the connection between these important destinations", the company said.

Eurostar says the connection at Brussels is a temporary measure until the British and Dutch governments reach an agreement to allow passport checks to be conducted on departure in the Netherlands. Initially, this new service involves a change on the return journey, as getting back from A to B will mean a journey from Amsterdam to Brussels for passport checks before a connection to St. Pancras.

Jacques Gounon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Group, said: "This launch is highly significant news".

Eurostar is opening a direct high-speed train route between London and Amsterdam this spring, the rail company announced Friday.

"With direct services from the United Kingdom to The Netherlands, France and Belgium, we are transforming the links between the United Kingdom and three of Europe's top trading nations".

Eurostar International Ltd. will link London with the Netherlands by rail starting April 4 in the biggest expansion of the Channel Tunnel express operator's network since it commenced operations in 1994. Over four million passengers travel by air between London and Amsterdam every year, and Eurostar clearly plans to cut itself a wedge of the transcontinental action.

The service will run twice a day from London, at 8:31am and 5:31pm. The governments have committed to putting the agreement in place by 2019 while Netherlands Railways (NS) and Eurostar are also in talks to introduce a third service between the two capitals in 2019.
