LNER & Hull Trains announce return of services

Following the announced end of Plan B restrictions, rail operators have started to release statements confirming services are returning to their timetables.

LNER returns to full timetable

London North Eastern Railway (LNER) has announced it is returning to a full timetable, as COVID restrictions are set to ease.

The timetable will return to normal on 14 February. The only exceptions are pre-planned engineering works.

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 first-class breakfasts and other hot meals, ordered using QR code and brought to passengers’ seats.

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.

Hull trains announces return of services

Hull Trains has announced that the 1708 Hull – London Kings Cross, and 2030 London Kings Cross – Hull will be reinstated to its passenger timetable services and put back on sale earlier than planned on February 7th.

David Gibson, Managing Director, said: “This is really positive news for our business and for passengers of Hull Trains. We can already see that demand has started to return with sales increasing and the numbers of reservations being made on the rise. We will continue to monitor sales and revenue every day and will reinstate all other withdrawn services at the earliest opportunity.”
