Eurostar reports 4% rise in business travellers
Cross-channel rail firm’s sales and profits edge up in 2014, its 20th anniversary, and it reports strong demand for its new south of France service
Eurostar has seen strong demand for its new service to the south of France via Lyon and reported a pick-up in business travel last year, when the business celebrated its 20th anniversary.
The cross-channel rail firm, whose new high-speed e320 trains will start running at the end of this year, said passenger numbers rose 3% to 10.4m in 2014. This brought the total number of passengers travelling on Eurostar since the start of services in 1994 to over 150m.
