The new St Pancras International Eurostar terminal has made an immediate impact on passenger numbers.
The high-speed passenger train service linking the UK to mainland Europe will carry a record 160,000 travellers, an increase of over 20% on the previous year, Eurostar said.
Eurostar, director of communications, Simon Montague, said: “Since Eurostar moved to St Pancras International, more and more people are realising Eurostar is easier, quicker and greener than flying.”
Domestic rail connections with St Pancras International offered through-fares from 68 towns and cities across the UK, Eurostar said. These through-fares start from £67 return.
To meet the extra demand during Easter, Eurostar has laid on three extra services totalling 2,250 seats.
