Heathrow Express unveils new-look trains

Heathrow Express has introduced a newly-refurbished fleet of trains, the first fleet refresh since it launched over 20 years ago, in 1998.

It has unveiled 12 Class 387 trains which have been up-cycled from GWR “in keeping with Heathrow Express’ sustainability values”.

There will be more space for wheelchair users, double the number of toilets and a continuous gangway through the whole train.

In addition, Business First passengers will enjoy worktables and extra legroom.

The modern interiors include USB plugs with every plug socket, making it easier for international passengers to charge devices while they travel.

Every carriage has more and improved TV screens showing live flight and rail connection updates, daily news highlights and shopping deals at Heathrow.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Heathrow Express is currently running only two trains an hour but is “closely monitoring the changing travel landscape”.

Prices for Heathrow Express start from £5.50 for a single online advanced ticket. Fully refundable tickets start from £22.00 for a single journey for Express Class and £32.00 for Business First.
