A. Channel Tunnel Fixed Link

At €202.9 million, revenues for the Fixed Link recorded an increase of 1% in the first quarter of 2017. Taking into account Europorte, the consolidated revenue for the Eurotunnel Group reached €231.8 million, an increase of 1% at a constant exchange rate.

Revenues for Shuttle Services were stable at €130.8 million compared to the same period in 2016 due to an increase in truck yield.

Revenues from the Railway Network grew by 4%, a sign of a return to normality for the Eurostar leisure segment, a trend which should continue in the month of April, with the record levels of reservations recorded by Eurostar for the Easter weekend.

B. Rail freight operators: Europorte and its subsidiaries

In France, Europorte saw a slight reduction in its revenues linked to the crisis in the cereals sector which had a significant effect on traction and transport commissioning in the sector.



  Q1 2017   Q1 2016   Change
Truck Shuttles   Trucks   409,856   410,729   0%
Passenger Shuttles   Cars¹   466,562   501,871   -7%
  Coaches   11,166   10,976   +2%
High-speed passenger trains² (Eurostar)   Passengers   2,270,671   2,229,218   +2%
Rail Freight trains 3 Tonnes 308,725 265,041 +16%
  Trains   543   442   +23%

¹ Including motorcycles, vehicles with trailers, caravans and motor homes.
² Only Eurostar passengers travelling through the Channel Tunnel are included in this table, thus excluding journeys between Paris-Calais and Brussels-Lille.
3 Rail freight services by train operators (DB Cargo on behalf of BRB, the SNCF and its subsidiaries, BG Railfreight and Europorte) using the Tunnel.

A. Eurotunnel Shuttles

  • Truck Shuttles: despite the unusually severe winter in the south of Europe, which penalised fresh fruit and vegetable exports, truck traffic remained stable over the first quarter of 2017. In a highly competitive context, with the return to normal operations for the port of Calais, Eurotunnel confirmed its place as leader in the market with a 38.9% market share in the first quarter of 2017 and continues its established progress.
  • Passenger Shuttles: car traffic, which was down by 7% to 466,562 vehicles carried, was penalised by the strongly unfavourable calendar effect with the Easter weekend, which generates high levels of tourist traffic, falling in April this year whilst in 2016 it fell in March. Le Shuttle car market share grew to 62.4% in the first quarter of 2017, following a record in February of over 64%.

B. Railway Network

  • High-speed trains: Eurostar recorded 2.27 million passengers, an increase of 2%, a positive sign of a return of traffic which is expected to continue during the second quarter, especially given the record level of reservations for travel over the Easter weekend.
  • Cross-Channel rail freight continued the trend observed towards the end of 2016 and recorded strong growth in the first quarter of 2017 of +23% compared to the previous year, proof that the efforts made by Eurotunnel and other parties to generate growth in the sector are bearing fruit.
