A new iPhone app is now available that allows you to purchase a ticket for the Heathrow Express, the fastest way of commuting between central London and Heathrow Airport. Once purchased via your handset, passengers will receive a barcode to their iPhone that represents their e-ticket. Not only will this save on queuing time, but it also eliminates the need of printing out paper tickets.
The Heathrow Express app that is available for free from iTunes also provides live service updates, while the app itself has been accredited by both Barclays and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, providing that much needed piece of mind when making payments via your phone.
The application is a first for the iPhone and could prove a turning point in the way customers make and receive train tickets.
