London North Eastern Railway has announced that they will be offering a discount to Ryanair passengers.

This announcement follows on from Ryanair’s announcement that they will be reducing the number of flights from Edinburgh to London.

LNER will be offering a 50% discount to keep Ryanair customers moving between the two capitals.

LNER run 25 trains every week day between Edinburgh and London.

Anyone who holds a Ryanair booking confirmation for flights to and from London or Edinburgh can take advantage of this special discount.

Benefits of train travel:

  • Delicious hot and cold food served onboard
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • No limits for your liquids
  • Exceptional views of the east coast countryside
  • But most importantly arriving straight into the city centre!

If you are booked on a Ryanair flight, between the 15 May to 28 June, you are eligible for this discount.

Train tickets must be booked before 23.59 on 30 April.

  • Why is LNER offering 50% off to Ryanair customers. What about the passengers who use LNER that could also save 50% of their journey from London to Edinburgh and Yorkshire.

  • Ryanair is rubbish. They started doing flights to & from London Southend Airport and now LNER is having competition with Ryanair. It’s actually pathetic on why a train operator would want to compete with such a rubbish airline company that have failed so many times. Ryanair shouldn’t even exist.

  • Although not in total agreement with this deal I do understand that in Business it is “Dog eat Dog”. If this overall gets additional business for L.N.E.R. then this will be viewed as a success. Like a previous comment I would like to see an offer for the general user and by that I do mean all users frequent and others.
    Come on Suzanne Donnelly I am convinced with your expertise you are able to come up with something.
