Train passengers have promised help for passengers stranded at Gatwick by the collapse of the airline Monarch.

Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR), which runs Southern, Thameslink and Gatwick Express services, said: “Govia Thameslink Railway has said its three train companies that serve airports will all honour the rail tickets of Monarch passengers returning to the UK early or late after the airline went into administration this morning.

“This applies to passengers with advanced pre-dated rail tickets returning from Luton (with Thameslink) and Gatwick (with Gatwick Express, Southern and Thameslink).”

GTR chief operating officer Nick Brown said: “People stranded by the Monarch problems have enough to worry about and this is something we can do to ease the last leg of their journey.”

    I suppose Southern Rail are the experts on cancelling services, so have plenty of knowledge to share.
