Eurostar launches direct service from Amsterdam, Rotterdam to London

In the end, Eurostar has finally tossed its direct service from Amsterdam to London, with a delay of five months and 10 months after the original start date was due.

The first train departs from Amsterdam’s central station at 7:47 am this Monday, an NS representative stated. The journey takes a scheduled four hours and nine minutes and rests at Rotterdam and Brussels.

Thru trains have consecutively come from London to Amsterdam since 2018, but travelers heading for the UK still had to move from one train to another and pass through safety checks in Brussels south. The direct service would have started by December 2019 but was deferred because arrangements for passport and custom management in Amsterdam were not done. COVID outburst then postponed the commencement at the resettled start date of April 30.

Eurostar runs two trains on weekdays and none at the weekend, largely because the pandemic has lowered demand. Travelers to the UK are supposed to observe a 14-day period of self-isolation when they reach and a further 10 days on their homecoming.
