Eurostar looking at all-year round service to south of France

Eurostar-south-franceREGULAR high speed rail services to the south of France from the UK could be up and running by 2015, Eurostar has said.

Chief executive, Nicolas Petrovic, reported on the success of its trial service to Provence that ran from 4 May to 29 June, saying more than 90% of capacity was sold, with the May half-term period being completely sold out.

"We have seen a surge in booking from outside Europe and our new service to Provence has proved a great success with many services running at full capacity," said chief executive Nicolas Petrovic.

With the success of the route behind them, Eurostar says it will look to introduce an all-year round service to the south of France from 2015.
