Travellers to and from East Anglia and North East London to Gatwick are quickly benefiting as Govia Thameslink doubles its services from Cambridge via Peterborough to two per hour.
On weekdays there are now eight Thameslink trains an hour from the airport to London Bridge. At St Pancras passengers from the intermediate Luton and Stevenage services can change on the same platform.
This is in addition to the 10 Gatwick Express and Southern services each hour to/from Victoria,
Govia Thameslink now operate more than 400 extra services a day than the start of May last year.
GTR chief executive Patrick Verwer said: “Our new Thameslink service to Gatwick has been really well received by passengers. They love the fact that they can now get there from stations along the Peterborough and Cambridge route, across central London without changing trains. The Cambridge service, which since Monday has increased to run half hourly, is also now available for the first time at weekends.”
