Passengers on the Heathrow Express can now have their tickets sent directly to a mobile phone or PDA.
The new system allows individual customers and corporate clients to book online and receive a barcode e-ticket via their mobile phone, which can then be scanned onboard the train. Passengers are also sent a website link containing journey confirmation details.
Says George Fripp, Heathrow Express international corporate account manager:
“Most of our customers are incredibly busy professionals that use our service because it’s the most convenient way to get to and from Heathrow Airport in just 15 minutes. E-ticketing builds on that by taking the hassle out of booking journeys and making their travel even more seamless. All you need to do is book, board the train straight away and go. It’s as simple as that.”
