The direct train service between London and Gatwick Airport will resume next month. The normal Gatwick Express had been suspended for two years during the pandemic but returned briefly in December on weekdays before being suspended again.
The regular Gatwick Express non-stop service was suspended two years ago due to the pandemic.
It resumed on weekdays only in December briefly but was suspended again.
The daily non-stop service will run between London Victoria and Gatwick from 3 April, although at a reduced frequency compared to pre pandemic.
Gatwick Express will have two services an hour, compared to four previously.
At peak times the weekday services will also also call at Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Hassocks and Preston Park.
Seychelles reduces entry restrictions
The Seychelles has announced it will no longer require a PCR test for entry for some visitors.
Effective 15 March 2022, visitors over 18 years, having received the first two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine and a booster dose after six months will be considered fully immunised. Fully immunisation for visitors aged 12 to 18 years, is only the completion of two vaccine doses.
All fully vaccinated visitors will be exempted from pre-travel PCR test requirement, while unvaccinated or partially vaccinated visitors will be required to present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours or a rapid antigen test done in a certified laboratory within 24hrs before departure to Seychelles.
Travellers that tested positive to the COVID-19 virus between 2 to 12 weeks prior to travel are also exempted from pre-travel COVID-19 testing by providing proof of infection and recovery.

Do you think it’s likely that British Airways might recommence LHR-SEZ?
Would love to visit Seychelles on an Avios redemption but don’t fancy have to go via Doha (unless it was a revenue fare for the tier points)
Highly unlikely. It was making a loss before Covid so I can’t see it coming back any time soon sadly.
Shame Seychelles has decided this now rather than a couple of weeks ago. Would have saved me £200. Coming back next week and at least I don’t have to do. PLF. However, having flown BA last time we came here and using Qatar this time, I don’t think I’d use BA again even if they did resume the route
