EXTRA SERVICE TO LAUNCH IN JUNE
EUROSTAR HAS confirmed that a third daily service from London to Amsterdam will begin operating on 11 June. The operator says the expansion comes ‘in direct response to customer demand’. Eurostar launched the first two direct services from London to the Netherlands in April 2018.
The extra service will depart St Pancras at 11.04 and will operate seven days a week. Eurostar has also adjusted the times of the other two services, with the morning departure on Mondays to Saturdays now leaving at 07.16, and the evening departure at 17.16 on Mondays to Fridays and 17.19 on Sundays. Journey times have also been extended; currently they are 3hr 41min to Amsterdam, but the amended timetable sees these rise to just under four hours. Direct return services from Amsterdam to London await the finalising of customs arrangements, with passengers still required to change trains in Brussels until these are in place.
