Eos, the all business class transatlantic airline, is now providing arriving and departing Stansted passengers with chauffeur-driven cars. The service is free within a 60 km radius of Stansted (this covers central London). The offer is for all tariff types with the exception of the weekend fare.
As an alterative, passengers arriving at Stansted can choose a day room at the first class Radisson SAS hotel adjoining the terminal. They can then proceed at their leisure into London with a complimentary return ticket on the Stansted Express to Liverpool Street.
Eos flies daily between London Stansted and New York JFK using B757s configured for 48 seats. Legroom is 78 inches and the seats are fully flat beds.
Currently Eos departs Stansted daily at 1810 to arrive into JFK at 2055. The inbound flight leaves JFK at 1905 to reach Stansted at 0715 the following morning.
But from May 23, the flights will leave Stansted earlier and return later from JFK. It means a 1600 departure from the UK to arrive in JFK at the earlier time of 1845. From New York, the eastbound flight will depart later at 2015 and now arrive in Stansted at 0830.
An Eos flexible "Anytime" ticket costs £2,500 return. For more information go to eosairlines.com
