VIRGIN TRAINS TAKEN OVER!
The new operator has promised passengers a series of improvements after Virgin Trains has been disqualified from the bidding process.
The Avanti logo incorporates the network that they will operate on.
Ananti has high standards to enhance everyone's experiences by refurbishing the current fleet of 56 Pendolino trains that were previously used by the former operator Virgin Trains. They promised passengers 25,000 new seats along with more reliable WiFi, improved catering and simple fares. They had also promised an additional 263 services by 2022.
Managing director Steve Montgomery says, "We are committed to our customers and over the next few years we will work with our industry and local partners not only to invest in and improve rail services on the route but also to attract more people to rail and connect communities across the country".
Avanti West Coast services will run commencing the 8th December 2019.
