Eurostar has reverted to a full timetable following the Channel Tunnel fire in September last year.
There will now be up to 19 trains per day from London to Paris and up to 10 per day to Brussels. Eurostar is adding up to a million extra seats from 23 February to the end of the year.
Eurostar chief executive Richard Brown said: “In challenging economic times, business travellers want the best flexibility, best punctuality and the best environment to work en route.
“Time is money and for businesses seeking to maximise value, Eurostar’s new timetable and faster journeys means a full day of productivity without the cost of overnight stays.”
“Emerging booking trends indicate business day trips are again on the increase – they were up 30% in the first half of 2008 and although we do not anticipate immediate recovery to this level, it is encouraging to see positive movement in the right direction.
“At Eurostar we are determined to rise to the challenge of the recession and are committed to delivering on further product enhancements during 2009 and giving the best possible value to our travellers.”
