Stansted Express, the fastest way between Central London and Stansted Airport has launched a new and convenient ticketing option via its website offering customers the opportunity to purchase tickets which can be sent direct to their mobile telephone or smartphone via a text message.
Customers using Stansted Express can already request tickets through the very popular Print at Home e-ticket service which was introduced last year, and together with the new mobile and smartphone ticket these options are helping to reduce queues and save precious time for busy air travellers using the Airport service.
The new mobile-ticket allows customers to book on-line and receive a text message, from which they can either use the web address in the text to retrieve the ticket in barcode form which can then be read by the On-Board Host to verify the ticket, or on less-sophisticated mobile phones the text message can simply be shown to the Host who will then verify via their BlackBerry device. It’s now that simple to book and purchase a ticket for travel with Stansted Express.
Although customers still have the option to book on-line and collect their ticket at the station or use the Print at Home service, the new mobile-ticket is already proving popular and by booking on-line through the various options now available, passengers can save £1 off the single and £2 off a return fare, and Stansted Express will not charge a booking fee.
Adrian Warren, Marketing Manager for Stansted Express said, “Travelling to and from an Airport can at times be a stressful experience and we are continually looking at ways to make travel easier. The new mobile-ticket service is already proving popular in complementing the e-ticket Print at Home service and has been well received by both our inbound and outbound audiences in speeding-up their time at the station as they continue with their onward journey. With trains every 15 minutes, it really is the fastest way to arrive and depart Stansted Airport.”
