More About Heathrow Express Trains
You may use split train tickets for travel on all Heathrow Express Airport Trains.
The Heathrow Express is a high-speed service link offering the fastest journey time between Heathrow Airport and central London – 16 minutes (21 minutes to Terminal 5). Its success since opening in 1998 has resulted in the strengthening of the train sets, and in June 2003 a further £30m service expansion was announced.
Growing air traffic at London's Heathrow Airport saw the British Airports Authority (latterly BAA) undertake one of Europe's largest construction projects, the new Terminal 5 that opened on 27 March 2008.
Heathrow Express operates non-stop services every 15 minutes, seven days a week, from London Paddington to Heathrow Central Terminals 1 & 3 (change here for the shuttle to Terminal 4), and then on to Terminal 5. It's the fastest way to travel from London to Heathrow.
Each train is air-conditioned, has free WiFi on board, has quiet zones where mobile phone use is not permitted and is equipped with Express TVs showing news coverage. There is also plenty of luggage space. You can now select quiet zone as part of your seat reservation selection when booking train tickets.
First Class passengers are provided with table seating, complimentary copies of the Financial Times and various magazines.
