We continue to operate our schedules playing a critical role in the supply chain and facilitating essential travel. Our services are operating as normal for freight including freight drivers. We are operating our ‘Travel Safe’ programme to ensure the safety and comfort of both passengers and crew on all our services. See what we are doing here.
Advice is still that travel should be for essential reasons only. Please consult your local health authority for further guidance.
