Soon these fast, uninterrupted journeys are going to be available on a daily basis, bringing travellers from the city centre of Amsterdam or Rotterdam to the city centre of London in less than 4 hours. Ambassasor Smits stated that this will bring our two countries even closer as North Sea Neighbours.
The trajectory in the other direction, from London to Amsterdam, has already been direct - without additional security checks in Brussels - since April 2018.
