A direct high-speed train will be launched from the beginning of April between Amsterdam and London – announced the Eurostar railroad linking Britain with Europe’s mainland.
According to the information, two flights a day begin at first.
The journey is expected to take 3 to 40 minutes from London to Amsterdam, but will be back 30 minutes later because of the passport control in Brussels. This is necessary because the island is not a member of the Schengen system free of internal border controls.
“This is an interim measure until the agreement between the UK and the Dutch Government is reached on how to carry out the control of the files in the Netherlands,” the spokesman of the company said, adding that it is expected by the end of 2019 to build the necessary infrastructure in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
According to official statistics, the number of air passengers is around four million a year between the two cities.
Since its inception in 1994, Eurostar traveled between London, Paris and Brussels and between several intermediate French and Belgian destinations, with its 300 km / h speed superstore through the Channel Tunnel.
