Trainline on track for post-pandemic recovery with 324% ticket sales increase
Train ticket booking firm Trainline has announced its highest net ticket sales since the pandemic began.
In a trading update for Q1 FY2022, the firm saw a year-on-year increase of group net ticket sales of 324 per cent.
UK Consumer net ticket sales were up 269 per cent year-on-year and improving week over week throughout the period.
Jody Ford, CEO of Trainline, commented: “It’s very encouraging to see people returning to train travel as lockdowns and restrictions gradually ease. By the end of May we were selling more tickets than we were in the same period two years ago.
“Having maintained our investment in product and tech throughout the pandemic, we are uniquely placed to support the industry recovery while leading the market shift to online and digital channels.
“This is reflected in the step up in eticket penetration and the pace of our recovery this quarter. Group net ticket sales in May reached their highest level since the pandemic began, including UK Consumer at 70 per cent and International at 73 per cent of FY2020 levels.”
