October 19th, 2011 by elisa

Eurostar‘s revenue has grown an impressive 7% to £197m for the third quarter of the year compared to that in 2010, pushing total revenues for the year to £617m, up 5% on last year.

Chief executive Nicolas Petrovic said: “We have delivered a solid performance during both the third quarter and the year as a whole, although the tough trading environment across Europe demands a cautious watching brief.”

Passengers numbers from January to September were up 1% to 7.3m. Business Premier sales grew 2% in the third quarter, and leisure travellers were also up by 2%.

The train company remains buoyant regarding the future outlook, saying:  “Despite the global economic backdrop, London and Europe continues to be a big draw for international travellers. With London 2012 now less than a year away, Eurostar anticipates in increased interest in the UK as a destination as the world’s focus turns to the Games next year.”

Eurostar recently launched a free mobile app to make it easier for customers to book tickets. It also has a £700m investment programme which will also introduce on-board WiFi and a state-of-the-art infotainment system.
