LNER services to double between Bradford and London


London North Eastern Railway (LNER) is pleased to confirm it will be doubling the number of Azuma weekday services between Bradford Forster Square and London King’s Cross from Monday 18 May 2020.

David Horne, Managing Director at LNER, said: “We are excited to be doubling our weekday services between Bradford and London thanks to the introduction of our state-of-the-art Azuma fleet.

“Home to two UNESCO World Heritage sites, beautiful countryside and a rich mix of cultures, Bradford is a fantastic destination and we are delighted that these new services will make it even easier for people to come and enjoy everything the region has to offer.

“Our extra Azuma services will give businesses in Bradford a boost to connectivity both with the capital and destinations along our East Coast route.”

The arrival of the new services will coincide with the first anniversary of LNER’s introduction of its world-class Azuma trains, which are revolutionising the customer experience between London, the East Midlands, Yorkshire, North East England and Scotland. They offer more reliable, comfortable and accessible journeys, with fast WiFi and first-class onboard catering.

LNER is growing its fleet with the introduction of 65 Azuma trains and working with Network Rail to deliver the East Coast Upgrade which, together, will mean further increases in services in the coming years.

Tickets for the new weekday services will be on sale from Friday 13 March 2020 with the best value fares on the LNER website.
