Eurostar has launched a third direct daily service from London to Amsterdam.
Since the service started in April 2018, over 300,000 passengers have travelled from London to Rotterdam, which takes three hours and 13 minutes and Amsterdam, which takes three hours 52 minutes.
Eurostar chief executive Mike Cooper said: “With environmentally responsible travel rising up the consumer agenda, we’re boosting capacity and offering more flexibility with a third daily service.”
A high-speed rail journey from London to Amsterdam emits 80% less carbon per passenger than the equivalent flight, reinforcing high-speed rail as the most environmentally friendly choice for European short haul travel.
To mark the introduction of the additional service and the opening of Van Gogh’s sunflower exhibition in Amsterdam on June 21, Eurostar has unveiled a specially commissioned gown made entirely of fresh sunflowers.
