Eurostar Plans To Start Direct Amsterdam – London Trains In October

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Railway Gazette International.

This is the introductory paragraph.

Cross-Channel high speed operator Eurostar has confirmed its intention to launch direct Amsterdam – London St Pancras services from October 26, complementing the London – Amsterdam trains which have run since April 2018.

The article then goes on to give more details of the service.

  • Security checks will be undertaken at Amsterdam CS and Rotterdam Centraal stations.
  • Amsterdam to London will be nine minutes over four hours.
  • There will initially be two trains per day.
  • There was a hint of more next year.
  • It will carry Shengen area passengers between Amsterdam and Brussels.

Eurostar says it will offer flexible booking options to help, if the Government changes COVID-19 quarantine regulations.

Conclusion

It looks a sensible offering and as I’ve used it between London and Amsterdam three times, I will be trying to fit in a trip before the end of the year.
