Ahead of the start of services on April 4, an inaugural service will run on February 20.

Eurostar direct rail services between London and Amsterdam will begin on 4 April, the company has announced, in an eagerly awaited move expected to spark a price war with airlines.

About 4 million people now travel between London and Amsterdam by air, and Eurostar said it's targeting a significant share of that market.

The service will hope to attract some of the four million passengers travelling by air between the two cities every year. As the Netherlands grows in popularity as a key business and tourism hub, the potential for the new service and the overall market is significant.

Trains from the United Kingdom capital will take slightly over three hours to reach Rotterdam and a further 40 minutes before arriving in Amsterdam, Eurostar said Friday.

"We're very excited", Eurostar chief executive officer Nicolas Petrovic said in a phone interview.

Our new route marks the culmination of the extensive investment in high speed rail on both sides of the Channel. Amsterdam services will depart St Pancras at 08.31 and 17.31, with the cheapest ticket priced at £35.

The decision was made in an effort to minimise the journey time, meaning it will only pick up travellers at Brussels and Rotterdam. Passengers making the return trip will initially need to stop in Brussels for passport controls because Dutch stations aren't yet equipped to make those checks.

KentOnline can reveal passengers in the county are not going to be picked up along the route. "With £1bn investment in our new state-of the art trains and enhanced connectivity on the European network passengers can now enjoy fast, seamless rail connections between the United Kingdom and mainland Europe". These customers will see their journey time cut by 17 minutes as the time onboard is reduced from 2hr05 to 1hr48.
