Heathrow Express, the fastest way to travel between central London and Heathrow Airport, has extended its service to a 24 hour operation on April 21st 2010 to ensure that passengers affected by the flight restrictions can make it to and from the airport.
Heathrow Express Managing Director Richard Robinson said: “Now that flights are operating today we have increased our capacity by an additional 4000 seats to help our passengers during this difficult time. Our operational flexibility allows us to provide extra trains through the night. It is crucial that we run a regular service for people flying out from the UK as well as customers flying back into the UK, but we wanted to do more to ensure that we have the capacity for even larger volumes of passengers.”
Heathrow Express is running its usual 15 minute every 15 minutes service to and from Paddington and Heathrow Airport, until 23:25 from Paddington Station and 23:42 from Heathrow Terminal 5. After these times, there will be a train departing every 45 minutes as follows:
From Paddington Station:
Passengers can take the Heathrow Express from Paddington to Terminal 5 at 00:30, 01:15, 2:00, 02:45, 03:30, 04:14 and 04:39.
From Heathrow Terminal 5:
Passengers can take the Heathrow Express from Terminal 5 to Paddington at 00:30, 01:15, 02:00, 02:45, 03:30, 04:10 and 04:41.
None of the above trains will stop at Terminals 1, 3 and 4 and passengers can use a free inter-terminal transfer coach to travel between all terminals.
A normal Heathrow Express service will operate again from 05:10 from Paddington and 05:07 from Terminal 5.
