Eurostar Increases Daily Frequency to Amsterdam

by Traveleads | June 11, 2019 | Latest News

Eurostar, the high-speed passenger rail service linking the UK with mainland Europe, is launching a third direct daily service from London to Amsterdam on 11 June.

To mark the introduction of the additional service and the opening of Van Gogh’s sunflower exhibition in Amsterdam next week, Eurostar unveils a specially commissioned gown made entirely of fresh sunflowers.
Inspired by the iconic Dutch masterpiece, celebrity costume-designer, Kate Tabor, has created the dress to celebrate the “Van Gogh and the Sunflowers” exhibition, which runs from 21 June – 1 September at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam.

Growing demand for Amsterdam service
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.
