Heathrow Express Enhances Service at London Paddington Station

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 3 December 2009

Heathrow Express, one of the fastest ways from London to Heathrow, has made Paddington station the first UK railway station to offer Flight Information Display Screens and Common User Self Service Customer Check In Services.

Heathrow Express Managing Director Richard Robinson said, "At Heathrow Express we never underestimate the stress of travelling and continually strive to enhance our service through leading innovations. People do not always get the opportunity to print their boarding pass before getting to the airport. By introducing this service at Paddington, customers have the opportunity to print their boarding pass and avoid the hassle of queuing for check in at the airport. Customers can then proceed direct to their airline's designated bag-drop if they have hold luggage. Customers can rest assured on the train because they already know where they are sitting on the plane."

With an average of 40,000 flights a year leaving Heathrow, the launch of these new enhanced information services will help reduce confusion with passengers trying to find their way to check in.

The machines are easy to use with touch screen facilities. Customers can print their boarding pass and view their flight information before they even arrive at the airport, helping them to feel more at ease on their way to Heathrow. The machines are initially available for passengers travelling on four airlines: Delta Air Lines, Finnair, Iberia and United Airlines.

The Flight Information Display Screens show the day's flights, the airlines, the terminal and departure times. They are placed by the Paddington Station Heathrow Express ticket office and half way down platforms 6 and 7, which are also dedicated solely to Heathrow Express.
