More Reasons To Love To Travel With LNER From February As Services Reintroduced21/01/22
London North Eastern Railway (LNER) will be increasing its timetable from Monday 14 February 2022.
The reintroduction of services sees the return of a full timetable, excluding pre-planned engineering works, along the 956-mile East Coast route which includes major towns and cities between London, the East Midlands, Yorkshire, North East of England and Scotland. Services between London King’s Cross and Leeds and Lincoln, which were temporarily reduced as a result of staff absences, will be reinstated.
David Horne, Managing Director at LNER said: “We are delighted to announce that we will be increasing our timetable from the 14th February 2022, connecting even more customers across our route just in time for half-term school holidays in parts of the country and Valentine’s Day.
“Like many in the transport sector, we have been impacted by staff absence due to Covid and had to make some changes to our services to minimise inconvenience for our customers. We are now seeing fewer staff absences and expect that to continue, so we’re looking forward to increasing our services and encouraging more people to discover our destinations and legendary customer experience.”
Also making a comeback are LNER’s famous freshly cooked full breakfasts and range of hot meals, which have been reintroduced in First Class as the catering offer is enhanced. A wide selection of food and drink is also available as part of LNER ‘Let’s Eat At Your Seat’ service in Standard, where customers can place their order using a QR code and have their snacks served directly to them.
Tickets are now on sale for a number of LNER journeys right through to 13 May 2022, with great offers available, including fixed-price LNER Family Return Tickets and savings of up to 20 per cent off LNER Advance tickets for group bookings of between three and nine people.
Customers can book direct, fee free and with ease using LNER’s mobile App and website and sign up for live journey updates, which will provide the latest information about their journey. LNER’s ‘Seat Sure’ enables customers to select and reserve their own seat so they can travel with confidence knowing they have the comfort of a seat for the duration of their journey. This can be done up to five minutes before their planned departure. Fee-free ticket changes are also available should travel plans change, with the option of changing a journey or opting for an eVoucher without any admin fee before 6pm the day before the original journey, and there’s One-Click Delay Repay if trains are delayed by 30 minutes or more.
LNER is also enhancing its popular rewards scheme for loyal customers, LNER Perks, which offers two per cent credit back on LNER journeys and £5 credit for signing up. More than 300,000 people have already joined and extra benefits and further exclusive offers have recently been introduced to members, with more incentives to come.
For added reassurance, enhanced levels of cleaning continue to be carried out onboard trains and at LNER managed stations.
