According to Eurostar’s submission to the Belgian Regulatory Service for Railway Transport, which is dated September 15, two services per day will operate in each direction, covering the 588km between London St Pancras International and Amsterdam Central in 3h 50min with intermediate stops at Brussels Midi, Antwerp Central, Rotterdam Central, and Schiphol Airport.

Amsterdam - London services will not serve Antwerp and journey times will range from 4h 9min to 4h 36min, including a stop of up to 28 minutes at Brussels Midi for security checks.

Services will depart from London St Pancras International at 08.04 and 17.04 Monday - Friday, 08.04 and 16.01 on Saturday, and 11.04 and 17.04 on Sunday. Departures from Amsterdam Central will be at 07.48 and 16.48 Monday - Friday, 07.48 and 14.18 on Saturday, and 09.25 and 17.21 on Sunday.

All services from London use paths currently utilised by trains to Brussels. All of these trains currently call at Lille Europe, but this station will not be served by trains to Amsterdam under the proposed timetable.

Eurostar said in April that it plans to begin operating the new services in December 2017, subject to the necessary approvals being obtained for operation of the new Siemens Velaro e320 (class 374) trains on the Belgian and Dutch networks.
