Promotional campaigns helped Eurostar to maintain revenues during the first three months of this year.

The high speed rail service between the UK and mainland Europe reported a 1% rise in revenues, up to £213m from £211m in the same period last year.

Business travel struggled due to lingering economic uncertainty throughout Europe, the company said. But promotions such as one offering 150,000 seats from £59 meant leisure bookings soared.
