LNER offers standard Flybe staff and customers free travel

London North Eastern Railway (LNER) is responding to the collapse of UK based airline Flybe with free travel for stranded Flybe staff and customers.

LNER will offer free Standard travel on any LNER train along the East Coast route.

Staff and customers should present their employee ID, boarding card or flight confirmation details in order to travel with LNER today.

Suzanne Donnelly, LNER Commercial Director, said: “We recognise this is a difficult time for Flybe staff and for customers booked to travel with the former airline. We are pleased to be able to offer free Standard travel to help people return home following the collapse of Flybe.”

LNER is currently transforming services along the East Coast route with the introduction of new world-class Azuma trains offering an average 100 extra seats compared to the trains being replaced.
