Heathrow Express - Fast Connection for Flyers
As Britain’s busiest airport, and one the biggest in the world, Heathrow Airport is an important hub for world travel and the Heathrow Express offers a vital connection between the central London station Paddington and the airport itself. The purpose is to get travellers to and from the airport to their connections as quickly as possible.
With trains every 15 minutes and a journey time to and from the two termini of the same time this is a very efficient way of making the connection, and London Paddington is well placed to provide links to other rail networks serving the capital.
16,000 Passengers a Day
The Heathrow Express service carries around 16,000 passengers to and from the airport each day and is the fastest link between the city and the airport. The service uses largely underground lines and does not have any interconnecting networks along the route for added efficiency.
Opened in 1998, the route is an essential service that serves a very busy airport with excellent journey times on modern rolling stock and is popular with people travelling to the airport from the North. Paddington features connections to major London termini that mean just about anyone can reach the Heathrow Express from any city in the country.
