UK: Eurostar launches direct trains from Amsterdam to London

The inaugural service of the first direct Eurostar train from Amsterdam to London left the British capital's St Pancras station on Tuesday, in advance of the route's planned launch for paying passengers at the end of April. UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps was in attendance at the launch along with officials from the Netherlands. Shapps referenced the apocryphal British newspaper headline... Еще referring to the Continent being cut off by fog, commenting that «despite the occasional fog, in the channel, neither continental Europe nor the UK will ever be isolated.» A direct Eurostar service from London to Amsterdam has already been in service since 2018 but until now passengers making the return journey had to change trains and go through customs in Brussels.
