Cross-channel delays hits Eurostar profits
Text size Aa Aa

Eurostar has suffered a drop in sales. Year on year first quarter revenues are down six percent or 300 million euros.

But the firm is confident of an uplift in sales because of several competitive offers in their Business Premier traveller category and high traffic levels over the Easter holidays.
