With the opening of the new Chiltern Railways service to London Marylebone (see BTN 26 October) Oxford Airport has begun offering business jet passengers and crew complimentary shuttle services to and from the new Parkway station by the Water Eaton park-and-ride site.
Trains to London run every 30 minutes and take just under the hour. Marylebone Station itself is on the Bakerloo Underground and about a five-minute walk to Baker Street, a major connecting point for the Tube.
BTN was on the inaugural service. The Chiltern Railways modern trains offer free wi-fi, three-pin electric plugs for charging at each seat, a quiet zone and trolley facility. The Bicester Village shopping complex is one of only two stops on the fast service (High Wycombe being the other) where announcements are made not only in English but Chinese and Spanish too.
Marylebone Station has six platforms and during the early morning peak handles up 30,000 passengers an hour. The concourse contains a small selection of shops, including Marks and Spencer, Burger King and WH Smith. There is a barber, a flower shop, and a public house with dining called the Victoria & Albert. www.oxfordairport.co.uk www.chilternrailways.co.uk
