Virgin and Eurostar in ticketing agreement

Virgin Atlantic passengers are now able to book Eurostar tickets for onward high-speed journeys between London, Paris and Brussels as part of an e-ticketing agreement between the two companies.

The new arrangement simply enables travellers to make a booking with Eurostar at the same time as booking their airline ticket via the Virgin Atlantic contact centre.

Alan Lias, head of Loyalty at Virgin Atlantic, said: "This new agreement gives Virgin Atlantic passengers even more flexibility. They can quickly and effortlessly book Eurostar tickets when booking a flight, and experience the delights of Eurostar's key destinations - London, Lille, Paris and Brussels."

Emma Harris, director of sales and marketing at Eurostar: "We're delighted that travellers on all Virgin Atlantic routes will be the first to benefit from the convenience of this new arrangement. Many of our customers making corporate bookings can now take full advantage of these through fares, opening up a host of new travel opportunities.

"The vast majority of people travelling between London and Paris and Brussels use Eurostar and it's fantastic news that our overseas travellers will now have great access to the ease and comfort of high-speed rail journeys."
