Eurostar has registered an increase in revenue for the first quarter of 2010.

The company's ticket sales are estimated to be £178m ($274m) for the first three months of this year.

The figures show a growth of 5% compared to the same period in 2009, according to the BBC.

There was also a 22% rise in non-European passengers from January to March this year.

This resulted in commuter numbers totalling two million, the operator said.

This may come as a surprise to the international operator after the problems it faced over Christmas and New Year with trains breaking down and others being cancelled.
