Thameslink boosts Gatwick links

Better weekend services to Gatwick from East Anglia are in prospect after Thameslink said it was introducing two additional through-London services every hour between Peterborough and Horsham on Saturdays from 21 December.

They will increase the number of direct services to St Pancras and central London as well as Gatwick, with Peterborough, Huntingdon, St Neots, Sandy, Biggleswade and Arlesey having a direct service to the airport on Saturdays for the first time.

Cross-London services to Gatwick from Hitchin, Stevenage and Finsbury Park will triple to three trains an hour and central London stations between St Pancras and London Blackfriars will see an increase in Saturday services from 11 to 13 trains an hour in each direction.

Other changes in the winter timetable, which begins on 15 December, include reinstating more weekday peak Great Northern trains calling at New Southgate and Oakleigh Park, as requested by passenger groups in the area.

Thameslink and Great Northern managing director Tom Moran said both stations would have an extra two trains an hour towards Moorgate during the morning peak, creating a service of six London trains an hour.
