Virgin Atlantic Announces E-Ticketing Partnership with Eurostar

Passengers traveling on Virgin Atlantic can now book Eurostar tickets for high-speed train trips between London, Paris and Brussels.

Virgin Atlantic is the first airline in the world to implement an e-ticketing agreement with Eurostar, enabling passengers to travel seamlessly between London and Paris or Brussels. Virgin Atlantic passengers can simply make a booking on Eurostar at the same time as they book their air ticket via the Virgin Atlantic contact center, which has access to live availability on each high speed train, or through their local travel agent.

Eurostar is the only rail operator in the world to be registered on Global Distribution System in its own right. Following the move to paperless ticketing Eurostar has pioneered this Interline E-Ticket solution to enable travel agents, and passengers, to book Virgin Atlantic and Eurostar tickets in one transaction.
