The people behind train company Eurostar today confirmed they were going to carry on with plans to create a direct service between London and the Dutch capital Amsterdam.
The Financial Times reports that the firm will press on, despite the fact their passenger numbers are going down.
It is understood they want to compete with the airline market for the same route.
“With the weakening of the pound, the UK is proving to be an attractive destination,” said boss Nicolas Petrovic.
“The outlook to the end of the year is encouraging, with many travellers taking day trips to London to do their Christmas shopping.
“The launch of our Amsterdam route at the end of next year marks a key milestone and represents a significant growth opportunity for the future.”
The company has bought new trains in preparation for the move, and it is understood the new service will begin in December 2017.
