Important message for customers travelling to / from London Gatwick by train
24th December - 01st January
Customers who plan to use the Brighton main line between London Victoria, Gatwick Airport and the south coast should be aware of changes to train services over the Christmas and New Year period.
Between 24th December and 01st January 2014 inclusive, three significant infrastructure upgrades will be carried out by Network Rail at London Victoria station, Gatwick Airport and a major junction between Redhill and Purley, all of which will have an impact on services operated by Southern, First Capital Connect and First Great Western on the main line and branch lines. You can check the latest information from these three train operators on their websites.
Customers are advised that Gatwick Express services will not operate from 25th December to 01st January. On 26th December, Southern will run services between London Bridge and Gatwick Airport (via East Grinstead where buses continue to Gatwick), and from 27th December to 01st January, Southern will operate services between London Victoria and Gatwick. Normal Gatwick Express services will resume on 02nd January.
First Capital Connect won't run trains between East Croydon and Gatwick Airport but its tickets will be valid on Southern services. London Victoria station will be closed on Boxing Day and reopen, with amended services until 01st January, on 27th December.
We strongly recommend that customers booked on easyJet flights from London Gatwick allow extra time for their journey to the airport if using the train.
