Business Traveller - UK - August 2012
“The current issues over waiting times at Heathrow Airport’s border control – often characterised as a particular problem for business, given the travellers who use the airport and concerns over the ‘impression’ that it gives potential investors in the UK’s economy – is a particularly good opportunity for international rail, which can boast far shorter waiting/processing times. Eurostar has until 2015 to profit from this advantage on its own terms, at which point competition, in the shape of German rail operator Deutsche Bahn, comes to the Tunnel – and with that, less control over ticket prices (as the supply/demand equation changes) becomes increasingly likely.”
– Tom Rees, Senior Travel and Tourism Analyst
