Planned strike action on Southern train services from Wednesday 7 to Thursday 8 September could impact your journey to or from Gatwick. Please check before you travel and allow plenty of additional time for your journey. 

Thameslink services are scheduled to operate as normal. Gatwick Express services to and from London are scheduled to run as normal, though some services from between Brighton and Gatwick may be affected.  

However, the strike will have an impact on Southern services, with reduced and modified services and many routes not operating. 

Please be aware train services are expected to be much busier than normal, however, additional rail staff will be on hand to assist with passenger enquiries. 

Thameslink, Southern and Gatwick Express will be accepting each other’s tickets during the strike.
