The Heathrow Express – the fastest route between central London and Heathrow Airport – has today launched the Festive Express. Until 7th December, those lucky enough to be travelling on the service will experience a more joyful journey as one of its carriages has been transformed into an enchanting festive scene.
The deal will see the high-speed train offer information on journey times and fast access to tickets between central London and Heathrow within the Google Maps journey planner.
Heathrow Express has launched a newly refurbished fleet of 12 Class 387 trains, the first refresh since the service launched over 20 years ago.
Sophie Chapman has worked at Govia as an independent consultant and completed a successful 22-year career with Eurostar, rising to head of on-board services.
Peak and off-peak ticket restrictions will be lifted from September 6th, meaning customers with single tickets, including those bought before September, can travel at any time of day.
Heathrow Express has released the first images of its new fleet of trains. The shots detail a range of features, including at seat USB power, new Business First seating and worktables and a striking external livery.
Heathrow Express has announced two new appointments in the commercial team. Mark Eastwood has taken up the role of business development manager, while Nicolette Miller has been appointed as partnership marketing manager.
Former head of commercial planning at Heathrow Airport, Chris Crauford, has been appointed to Heathrow Express’ senior leadership team as head of commercial.
With under a year to go until the start of Crossrail services through central London, Heathrow Express has said it has no concerns over the launch of the new line.
Heathrow Express has received an overall satisfaction rate of 96 per cent from the latest National Rail Passenger Survey, placing it head and shoulders above the national average of 81 per cent and 17 percentage points ahead of the London & South East average of 80 per cent.
