More and more trains running until the end of the year

Where restrictions continue to be lifted and travel is becoming easier for people that have been vaccinated, we are pleased to see a strong growth in demand among leisure and business passengers alike.
To respond to this demand, we will be expanding our timetable and running more trains until the end of the year.

From 22 October 2021 and on an increasing basis up to 08 January 2022, we will run up to fourteen daily return trains. This will include:

  • Nine services in each direction on our London to Paris route

  • 9063 Paris: 21:13 -> London: 22:30 / 9054 London: 20:01 -> Paris: 23:17
