Gatwick trains update

From 22 December, First Capital Connect will double Thameslink route services to and from Gatwick Airport on a Sunday with four trains an hour between Gatwick to London and on to Luton and Bedford.

However, passengers are being reminded that the Thameslink route between East Croydon and Gatwick will be closed from 27 December 2013 to 1 January 2014 inclusive for improvement work by Network Rail, adding 70-90 minutes to their journeys  (see BTN 14 October re Gatwick Express).

From 8 December there will also be an extra two trains an hour calling at West Hampstead Thameslink in each direction in the off-peak on weekdays and all day Saturdays which will help passengers interchanging with the Jubilee line or London Overground.

Customer Service Director, Keith Jipps, said: “We’re really pleased to be able to double the service we run to and from Gatwick Airport on Sundays.  Many people fly in or out on a Sunday and this will give our passengers many more connections.

“However, it’s important that people remember to allow a lot longer between 27 December and 1 January inclusive to reach the airport because of the engineering work”.  www.firstcapitalconnect.co.uk
