Heathrow Express is to increase its peak time ‘turn up and pay fares’ from June 6.
Standard one-way peak time fares (for travel between 0700 and 1000) will rise from £22 to £24, while business class fares will increase from £30 to £32 for travel at any time of the day.
At the same time standard return tickets for travel during the off-peak period between July 18 and August 31 will be reduced from £36 to £25.
The rail operator says that the fare increases will “reduce congestion during peak times”, and points out that the cheapest advanced single tickets start from £5.50.
Commenting on the move Fraser Brown, Director of Heathrow Express said:
“Heathrow Express is the quickest way to get from central London to Heathrow and is well regarded by passengers who score it highly for customer satisfaction.
“It is an increasingly popular way to get to the airport and these changes will continue to protect the great service we give our passengers.”
