With journey times from Ebbsfleet International to Amsterdam taking four hours and 30 minutes, Eurostar is using the High Speed 1 (HS1) line, relieving pressure on air travel.

Dyan Crowther, chief executive of HS1, said: "We have been delighted to support Eurostar in the introduction of this fast connection to one of Europe's most dynamic capital cities. 

"HS1 has the capacity and we look forward to working with Eurostar and other international operators on the launch of many new and exciting routes in the years ahead."
