Earn Avios when booking Heathrow Express tickets
Published: 27/09/2013 - Filed under: News »
Heathrow Express has teamed up with Avios to allow members to earn points when they buy train tickets online.
The new partnership enables British Airways Executive Club members and UK members of the Avios Travel Rewards Programme to collect up to 400 Avios when buying Heathrow Express tickets on heathrowexpress.com/ba or heathrowexpress.com/avios.
Avois balances will automatically be credited within 21 days from the booked date of travel.
There are four earning levels:
- 100 Avios per adult standard single ticket purchased
- 200 Avios per adult standard return ticket purchased
- 200 Avios per adult business first class single ticket purchased
- 400 Avios per adult business first class return ticket purchased
Keith Greenfield, managing director at Heathrow Express, said: "Thousands of customers know Heathrow Express is the smarter way to travel between Heathrow and central London and now they can benefit from this further by collecting Avios points."
Nick Pilbeam, drector of new markets and business development at Avios, added: "Collecting between 100 and 400 Avios by simply travelling with ease and convenience between Heathrow and central London means members are rewarded for savvy purchasing and travel habits, boosting their Avios balance for their next trip away."

Hello, this sounds like good news but I have a question - what about train tickets that include HEX travel (for example I travel from Bristol to Heathrow on a ticket that allows HEX travel) - would this also earn avios?

despite being jointly operated by BAA/HEX, Avios aren't available either on the Heathrow Connect despite charging a price per mile similar to the HEX (for a very poor service) between LHR and the first stop! With BAA profits come first, customers are always last!

Another downside is that it doesn't appear to give the option for current HEX discounts, such as the £18 off the return standard fare for a couple travelling together.
