Virgin Trains to run 25 additional services on London – Scotland route during BA strike

Press Release   •   Dec 15, 2009 08:27 GMT

Virgin Trains is urgently firming up precise timing details for 25 additional services that it plans to run on the London – Glasgow via Preston route over the Christmas and New Year holiday period to help passengers affected by the proposed strike by British Airways’ cabin crew.

The extra trains will supplement the already advertised service of 26 trains daily in both directions between Euston and Glasgow.

Chris Gibb, Virgin Trains’ Chief Operating Officer said today: “We will of course be busy at this time of year, but I am confident that with the additional trains being arranged alongside our scheduled services most of which have 439 seats, we will be able to carry all our regular customers together with those displaced by the BA strike whom I would like to welcome to our trains.” 

Further details regarding the exact timings of extra trains will be available very soon.
