Eurotunnel sets new passenger records for summer 2017

Summer 2017 has seen Eurotunnel set new traffic records for Le Shuttle Passenger service.

With almost 564,000 vehicles carried over the period from July 17th-September 3rd, traffic grew by two per cent compared to the same period in 2016, which was itself a record year.

Beyond the traffic records, the operator was keen to note recent investments in its premium service, like the opening of the new Flexiplus lounge in France, are also bearing fruit, with bookings for this category up by six per cent.

In addition, Le Shuttle has seen Frequent Traveller bookings increase by 12 per cent, proof that a weak pound is no obstacle to our customers when they want to journey to France.

Jo WIllacy, Eurotunnel commercial director, stated: “Our customer numbers continue to grow alongside their loyalty to our service.

“I can only thank them on behalf of all our staff for the confidence they have shown in us. The Le Shuttle frequency of departure and the speed of service are key factors in booking decisions.”
