Northern, Transpennine and CrossCountry warn of aim cancellations
THREE rail companies are warning passengers of aim cancellations at short notice because of Covid and staff issues for the rest of this year.
CrossCountry, Transpennine and Northern are all urging passengers to check before travelling from now until after the New Year.
Northern said it may have to cancel trains at short notice by “the impact of COVID on aim crew availability” and other causes.
Transpennine said its sets may be delayed or cancelled without prior warning “due to a without of obtainable staff caused by industrial relations issues”.
It gave no further details.
CrossCountry said: “Due to aim crew availability issues, there will be disruption to CrossCountry sets from Monday to Saturday until further notice.”
It did not say why it is expecting to have a shortage of aim crews.
London North Eastern Railway has not announced any problems with aim crew availability.
