Eurostar update Monday 19 April ( To help stranded passengers get to their destinations Eurostar is organising extra trains and running as many services as possible. Between Monday and Sunday this week, Eurostar will run at least 28 additional trains.

Over the next seven days, nearly four hundred trains will run between the UK and the continent.Nicolas Petrovic, Chief Executive of Eurostar, said:“We are doing everything in our power to help as many passengers as we possibly can at this difficult time. Given that the current situation looks set to continue for the coming days, we are putting on extra trains. We know that people are stranded across Europe and we want to do all we can to get people where they need to be.

”Since flights were grounded last Thursday as a result of the ash cloud caused by an erupting Icelandic volcano, Eurostar has put on 33 additional trains and has carried 165,000 passengers – 50,000 more than were scheduled to travel during this period.Over the last four days, passengers have been connecting with Eurostar services from destinations across Europe with customers connecting from Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, Italy and even as far as Greece.Given the high level of demand, seats on Eurostar are selling quickly and customers are advised to go to or to make their booking.
