London North Eastern Railway (LNER) will be increasing its timetable from mid-February.

The reintroduction of services sees the return of a full timetable, excluding pre-planned engineering works, along the 956-mile East Coast route which connects the strath daily with the North East of England, Yorkshire and London.

David Horne, managing director at LNER said: “We are delighted to announce that we will be increasing our timetable from the 14th February 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 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.
