Kids go free on Heathrow Express

Children are now able to travel free on the Heathrow Express.  The airport train service has run its ‘Kids go free’ offer in the past for limited periods of time.  The new initiative is part of the company’s plan to increase the number of leisure travellers using the 15-minute service to the central area and onward to T5.

The Kids go free offer applies to children under 16 accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Fraser Brown, Director of Heathrow Express said: “Two thirds of the people who use our service are travelling on business.  We want to encourage more leisure passengers, families in particular, to use our service.  Allowing children to travel free at all times from now on is a key part of doing this.

“As well as making things easier for hard-working families heading abroad for a break, we also want to welcome more families visiting Britain from overseas.”

Over the Easter weekend, Good Friday 3 April 3 to Bank Holiday Monday 6 April  Heathrow Express is also running a price offer aimed at adult leisure travellers.  It is reducing single standard tickets from £21.50 to £10 and return tickets, valid for travel after the four-day period, from £35 to £31.50.

Heathrow Express topped the autumn National Rail Passenger Survey, published in January by Consumer Focus, with 94% for ‘overall satisfaction.’  www.heathrowexpress.com
