Virgin Trains is increasing capacity on its services along the North Wales route by doubling its Voyager trains as part of its improvements to its timetable on the west coast.
From 21 May customers travelling on the 10:42 Crewe – Holyhead and 13:55 Holyhead – London Euston services on Sundays will benefit from longer trains and more seats, with the increased capacity of an additional 512 seats in total. This equates to an extra 256 seats on each service – an increase of 100% on each service with nearly 70% available for customers to reserve.
“The latest improvements will provide our customers with more seats on our busiest services”
“At Virgin Trains we always strive to offer the best possible experience for our customers,” said Ady Crymble, Customer Experience Manager at Virgin Trains on the west coast. “We’ve seen a record number of journeys on our west coast services and we’re pleased to be able to offer additional capacity along our North Wales route. The latest improvements will provide our customers with more seats on our busiest services on the North Wales route and we look forward to welcoming them on-board soon.”
Virgin Trains currently operates eight services along the North Wales coast on a Sunday. The 10:42 and 13:55 services on a Sunday are the first to be strengthened with the addition of two Voyager trains and will provide an overall increase of 25% in seats along the North Wales coast on Sundays.
This is the latest improvement the train operating company has introduced, designed to enhance the experience for customers travelling on the North Wales route.
