London Travelers: Buy Heathrow Express Tickets on Your Mobile Device

— December 16, 2010

Heathrow Express, the fastest way to travel between central London and Heathrow Airport, has become the first train company in the U.K. to launch a Blackberry and Android app which allows users to buy tickets and receive them directly on their devices.
The free app features live service updates as well as the facility to purchase tickets. This secure app has been accredited by Barclays and is PCI DSS compliant (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) -- the international standard for data security. It accepts all major credit and debit cards, except Maestro.
Richard Robinson, Heathrow Express managing director says, "The launch of our new app is the next phase in enhancing our seamless travel proposition for our customers. Being able to buy your ticket on your phone from anywhere in the world will greatly assist our customers and once again demonstrates that Heathrow Express invests in meaningful and practical innovation to support our passengers.
"With Blackberry dominating the business market, it made sense to introduce an app that most of our customers can use. Our development schedule allowed us to complete apps for Blackberry and Android users first, with an iPhone version following soon in the New Year."
This new app is available now for BlackBerry, Android and Java-enabled mobile users from Android users can also download the app now from the Android apps store.
