Thameslink Saturday train services into Gatwick Airport will triple this month, following changes to the winter timetable.
Two additional Saturday trains will run every hour between Peterborough and Horsham, tripling the number of direct services that go to London Bridge and Gatwick Airport.
The changes - to be implemented on December 21 - mean that Stevenage and Hitchin stations will be serviced by three fast trains per hour which alight at Blackfriars, London Bridge, and Gatwick Airport.
Tom Moran, Managing Director for Thameslink and Great Northern, said: "We are delighted to be introducing these improvements for our passengers, because we know there has been strong demand for them. This will provide more travel opportunities for existing and potential new passengers."
Other changes in the winter timetable - to begin on Sunday, December 15 - include the reinstatement of more weekday peak Great Northern trains calling at the busy stations of New Southgate and Oakleigh Park.
