Early morning airport services

We understand that the timetable changes brought in at the end of June 2018 made journeys to work for some customers less convenient.

As with all our services, we need to make sure there is sufficient demand and that customers regularly use the services to enable us to continue running them.

In direct response to feedback from Airport and airline teams on the timetable changes, which highlighted gaps in departure times for particular shift patterns, on 29 October 2018 National Express launched some additional early morning journeys to enhance the frequency of services between Brighton and Gatwick Airport.

We look forward to welcoming more customers on to these services.
