Eurostar launched a new class service today in response to changing needs of customers. Standard Premier has been introduced as a ‘mid-class’ designed to appeal to cost-concious business travellers and leisure travellers who want extra space and service. It will replace the Leisure Select class. Tickets are on sale from 5 May for travel from 1 September. “Following extensive research and feedback from our corporate clients and business travel agents, it became very clear that there was a strong appetite for a mid-range product pitched between our fully-flexible Business Premier and Standard classes,” said Eurostar Commercial Director Nick Mercer.
