Gatwick Express is extended its service to Brighton, with six extended daily services in the morning and evening, starting 15 December 2008.Chris Burchell, managing director of Southern and Gatwick Express explains, “Linking our second largest airport to one of our most cosmopolitan seaside towns will provide an enhanced rail service to and from the airport for incoming tourists and local residents. “
Passengers using the extended services from Gatwick to London Victoria will still experience the same features that Gatwick Express offers including: a frequent service, a 30 minute non-stop journey to and from the airport, the ability to buy tickets on-board, an on-board catering service and Gatwick Express staff to help customers both on the train and at stations.
For the new Brighton service, hosts will be on hand at Brighton station, and on-board the train, giving customers the best possible service.
