About Gatwick Express

Gatwick Express has been running direct train services from London Victoria Station to Gatwick since 1984. It is considered the fastest train service to Gatwick Airport from Central London, and is the only non-stop option available. The Gatwick Airport railway station first opened in 1958, and was a stop on the line from London to Brighton only. However, as air travel increased in popularity and the need for train transport to London Gatwick increased, faster services became a priority. It is currently run by Govia Thameslink Railway.
