Eurostar launches its new state-of-the-art e320 trains on the London-Brussels route
Eurostar, the high-speed rail service between the UK and mainland Europe, previewed its new e320 train on the London-Brussels route in advance of its introduction into service on Sunday 28th May.
The arrival of the new trains on the Brussels service includes 17 new e320 trains and the refurbishment of its original trains.
Significant investment in the London-Brussels route
Designed by the world-famous Italian design house, Pininfarina, renowned for its iconic car designs, the e320 boasts 20 per cent more capacity than the original Eurostar trains. With a bold design, chic interiors as well as Wi-Fi connectivity and 300 hours of on-board entertainment streamed to customers’ personal devices, the new trains provide an unprecedented level of style and comfort.
The introduction of the e320 on the London-Brussels service also follows an extensive renovation of the Eurostar terminal in Brussels Midi. This has created an expanded departure area and a more efficient check-in space which will be further enhanced by the introduction of facial recognition e-passport gate technology for the peak summer holiday period.
