    However if the EU requires it the operator presumably has to bear the cost of having customs at places they wouldn't otherwise be needed.

    It’s a matter for the individual member state.

    I suppose so. However the direct return services can only be introduced during a timetable change, right? So that's mid-Dec for winter or mid-June for summer. The Amsterdam service was introduced in April 2018, so pfft! <shrug>

    The issue in the case of a no-deal Brexit isn't to do with passport checks, but customs, as the UK would be outside a customs union. That is what the Dutch secretary of state is referring to

    There are already customs (as distinct from immigration) checkpoints at the UK arrival stations for Eurostar.

    Ebbsfleet is possible as things stand, but Ashford can’t take 374s and the Netherlands can’t take 373s.
