National Express Managing Director Tom Stables said: “We are pleased to add Stansted Airport to our unrivalled network of Christmas Day services. “We know people still want to jet off to the ski slopes or warmer climes at Christmas, which is why we have kept our Stansted services running – ensuring people can still catch their plane while there is no train service.”
