LNER Urges Customers To Book Early This Christmas

26/11/20 LNER Urges Customers To Book Early This Christmas

London North Eastern Railway (LNER) is urging customers to arrange their Christmas travel plans as early as possible.

From 25 to 30 December inclusive, Network Rail is embarking on a six-day closure of London King’s Cross station to complete complex engineering work as part of the East Coast Upgrade programme. During the closure, customers are being advised not to travel to or from London.

To help as many customers as possible to travel ahead of the closure, LNER is increasing services from early December until Christmas Eve.

Following the 25-30 December closure of London King's Cross, further engineering works will mean substantially reduced capacity at the station from 31 December to 3 January 2021, with a reduced timetable in operation.

Tickets for the entire festive period will be released for sale from 27 November, enabling customers to plan and book their outbound and return journeys at the same time. All LNER services are reservation only, ensuring that customers are allocated a socially distanced seat for their journey.

A spokesperson for LNER, said: “We understand the disruption this engineering work may cause to Christmas plans this year, so we are urging our customers to plan and book their travel as early as possible.”

Once complete, the East Coast Upgrade will allow LNER to run more trains between London, the North of England and Scotland, and to deliver quicker, more reliable journeys across the route.
