Flybe passengers offered free travel on TransPennine Express trains up until midnight on Sunday 15 March

Following the news that airline Flybe will not be providing any flights today (Thursday 5 March), TransPennine Express will offer a free ticket on its trains to all Flybe customers intending to travel up until midnight on Sunday 15 March.

Fellow FirstGroup rail companies, which comprise Avanti West Coast; Great Western Railway; South Western Railway; and Hull Trains, will also be offering a free ticket up until midnight on Wednesday 11 March

Customers will need to provide a boarding pass or other valid proof of booking for a flight any time up until midnight on Sunday 15 March. They should show this to employees at the station ticket office where they begin their journey and will be given a complimentary standard class ticket to their original flight destination, via any reasonable route. Flybe employees should show staff ID to take up the same offer.

First Rail Managing Director Steve Montgomery said “Our rail services connect people and communities up and down the country and as a gesture of goodwill we want to ensure that anyone who was due to travel on Flybe’s grounded flights this coming week can still complete their journey.”
