Wednesday, 15 October 2014

Abellio Greater Anglia has seen an increase in the number of passengers using its new Cambridge – Stansted Airport services.

An additional 3,000 passenger journeys have been made per month since the new services launched in July, in line with the train operator’s expectations, with this figure expected to grow in the future.

Abellio Greater Anglia now operates eight new services in each direction on Mondays to Fridays to enhance the existing timetable, operated by Cross Country, to provide an improved half-hourly off-peak frequency on the busy Cambridge to Stansted Airport rail corridor.

The extra trains depart Cambridge at: 09.31, 10.26, 11.26, 12.26, 13.26, 14.26, 15.26 and 21.46, with return services from Stansted Airport at: 10.05, 11.05, 12.05, 13.05, 14.05, 15.05, 16.05 and 22.05.

All services call at Audley End.

Andrew Camp, Abellio Greater Anglia’s Commercial Director, said: “It is pleasing to see that the additional services have been welcomed by passengers who are making use of the improved links between Stansted Airport and Cambridge. The new half hourly frequency of services to the airport conveniently opens up over 160 international destinations in just a short journey time of 30 minutes and we expect the popularity of these services to continue to grow.”
