IT’S A DAM GOOD SER­VICE

EUROSTAR’S new Am­s­ter­dam and Rot­ter­dam ser­vice, launched ear­lier this year, will in­tro­duce a third train each day from June to meet de­mand.

The trains are di­rect out­ward, but pas­sen­gers must dis­em­bark in Brus­sels to clear im­mi­gra­tion on the in­ward jour­ney. The UK and Dutch gov­ern­ments aim to have bor­der con­trols in place in Am­s­ter­dam Cen­tral sta­tion by the end of 2019 to al­low a di­rect re­turn. Eurostar says as soon as it is in place it will run four trains a day with am­bi­tions for five. Fares start at £35 one way. See eurostar.com

NO-FRILLS Ice­landic car­rier Wow is start­ing a sea­sonal, six-timesa-week route from Gatwick to Van­cou­ver on Canada’s Pa­cific Coast next sum­mer.

One-way fares to the spec­tac­u­larly lo­cated Bri­tish Columbia city will start at £129 – but the jour­ney via Reyk­javík will take a whop­ping 14 hours, and in­cludes chang­ing planes in Ice­land.

The in­au­gu­ral flight will de­part on June 6, with the transat­lantic sec­tor op­er­ated by a state-ofthe-art Air­bus A321­neo air­craft.
