(Luton, UK – 6 January, 2017) Monarch is aware of the planned strike action due to affect the Southern rail services on the following dates:

  • Tuesday 10th
  • Wednesday 11th
  • Friday 13th January

Should the industrial action go ahead there is likely to be severe disruption to Southern rail services during these dates. We advise customers to check with Southern Railway before travelling and allow plenty of extra time for their journey. Customers planning to travel by car are also advised to allow extra time travelling to the airport as the roads will be busier due to the rail strike. For your reference, check-in opens three hours before departure and closes 45 minutes before departure.
