Southern switch for Gatwick

The day-to-day management of Gatwick Airport station has transferred from Network Rail to Southern.

Says Southern Director, David Scorey, ‘We already manage 156 stations and it’s that station management experience, which includes provision of excellent levels of customer service and train dispatch, which is at the core of our business. It was the obvious thing to do, especially as the station is set for major redevelopment, and I know that airline passengers and commuters alike will benefit tremendously from this move.’
