There will be more trains, with up to 19 services per day on the London – Paris route and up to 10 on the London – Brussels route. In addition, a new direct Ashford – Brussels service will begin on the same date. It was originally planned for December but has been delayed by the restrictions on tunnel capacity since 11 September last year.

From tomorrow (10 February) until 22 February, Eurostar will continue to operate its existing departure times. This short change-over period will enable Eurostar to implement the switch to its full timetable with the minimum of disruption to travellers.

Richard Brown, Chief Executive, Eurostar said, “The return to journey times of roundly just two hours between London, Paris and Brussels is good news for business travellers who want to make day trips without the cost of overnight stays.

“For leisure travellers, it means shorter journeys that make Eurostar the fastest and best value way of getting away from it all, for a spring break on the continent.”

“We're pleased that Eurotunnel and its contractors have finished the repairs so quickly. The last few months have at times been frustrating for our travellers and we're looking forward to once again offering them the best service that we possibly can.”
