Getting to Amsterdam - Train issues

Struggling London City Airport (LCY) could be a major beneficiary when Eurostar suspends between London St Pancras and Amsterdam next year. 

Southend Airport could also get a much needed boost and clearly easyJet, who currently only offer a single flight daily to Schiphol, will monitor the situation.  

The high-speed railway company has confirmed that services will not run into the central Amsterdam station for a period whilst it carries out a major refurbishment. Eurostar will also not operate Rotterdam trains from London. January 2025 is being suggested for the services to return.

From London there are numerous alternative services to Amsterdam out of Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted and in particular LCY where presently British Airways and KLM operate 16 flights daily, the airport’s busiest route. However, the 100-seat Embraer aircraft hardly make up for the 894 available on Eurostar.

At Rotterdam Airport, British Airways is the only UK service provider with up to five flights per day from LCY.
