Mary Walsh, Director of Communications for Eurostar, said: “Our services are always busy over bank holiday weekends, but we have seen a spike in demand over the next few days following the ash cloud disruption. We continue to monitor the situation and if the demand for tickets grows further we are in a position to lay on more additional services.”

During the ash cloud disruption in 2010, Eurostar ran over 60 extra services and carried more than 500,000 passengers, 100,000 more than were originally booked to travel.

Given the high level of demand, seats on these additional Eurostar services are expected to sell quickly, so customers are advised to go to www.eurostar.com or call 08432 186 186 to check availability and make their booking.
