After a 21-month hiatus because to the pandemic, the Gatwick Express airport train link from central London will reopen before Christmas.
The resumption on weekdays on December 13 is intended to “assist Gatwick Airport’s and the south-east economy’s revival.”
As the epidemic spread, passenger numbers at the airport plummeted, the service was discontinued on 30th March 2020.
Passengers are returning in larger numbers to the airport, however, Gatwick Express will be impacted by engineering work and will not run between Christmas Day and 3rd January.
From 4th January, Gatwick Express trains will operate on a winter schedule, with two non-stop services operating seven days a week between London Victoria station and the airport, with connections to Brighton.
According to the train operator, this was the initial plan for services after May 2020, which was adopted to assist the redevelopment of Gatwick’s station, which means fewer platforms are accessible.
Angie Doll, temporary chief operating officer of Govia Thameslink Railway, said: “We’re pleased to reinstate our seven-day-a-week non-stop Gatwick Express service.
“Gatwick airport plays a vital part in driving economic growth in the south-east and we’re proud to support its recovery.”
