Following the news that airline Flybe will not be providing any flights today (Thursday 5 March), the UK’s largest rail operator FirstGroup will offer a free ticket on its trains to all Flybe customers intending to travel up until midnight on Sunday 15 March.
FirstGroup’s rail companies comprise Avanti West Coast; Great Western Railway; South Western Railway; TransPennine Express and Hull Trains.
Customers will need to provide a boarding pass or other valid proof of booking for a flight today. 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 today can still complete their journey.”
