Eurostar is pressing ahead with plans for direct services between London and Amsterdam despite a drop in passenger numbers.
The operators of the cross-Channel high-speed rail service suffered a 10 per cent year-on-year decline in passenger numbers during the third quarter but said plans for the new route were “progressing well.”
The new service would provide a rival to airlines transporting 3 million people a year from London to Holland.
