Flight departure boards for Heathrow are being installed at Canary Wharf Elizabeth Line station, marking the launch of the direct connection to the airport.
As of November 6, passengers can travel from Canary Wharf direct to Heathrow airport in 45 minutes.
The boards set up at Canary Wharf include real-time information from the airport terminals.
The Elizabeth Line opened in May this year – nearly four years behind schedule.
Heathrow chief commercial officer Ross Baker said:
“The full opening of the Elizabeth line will mean the UK’s travel hub, Heathrow, and its business hub, Canary Wharf, are directly connected like never before.
“It enables all passengers travelling through Heathrow to get to and from Canary Wharf direct at unprecedented speed which is a big win for global business and sustainable travel. At Heathrow we work extremely hard to consistently enhance passenger experiences and displaying flights from the airport at Canary Wharf is a way of making sure that starts at the beginning of the journey.”
Shobi Khan, CEO of Canary Wharf Group, added:
“The new Elizabeth line is a game-changer for our residents, office workers and visitors as people can now travel direct to and from Heathrow in just 45 minutes. Business travellers and residents who would have previously opted for multiple connecting tube lines or taxis can now enjoy state-of-the-art travel on the Elizabeth line, which is comfortable and greener.
“We hope businesses currently taking residency in Canary Wharf will relish the vast number of international business opportunities the extension is sure to bring, and we hope to inspire other businesses and Londoners alike to take up residency here.”
Transport for London also opened the final Elizabeth Line stop at Bond Street station last month.
