Travel Business Review - 07 May 2012

Heathrow Express, a UK-based express train service from London Heathrow Airport (Heathrow) to London Paddington station, has announced new features for its smart phone applications.

The company is offering a new feature for the applications, which allows business travellers to purchase tickets for Heathrow Express trains using their smart phones.

Heathrow Express is a part of BAA Ltd, owner and operator of six British airports, including London Heathrow. The company has added new capabilities to its existing Blackberry and Android applications, for buyers to have electronic tickets bought and delivered to their smart phones, as well as receive updates on travel plans.

The upgraded app also allows business travellers to use a corporate trade account for making bookings for the train service, without having to go through their appointed travel agents.

Heathrow Express is implementing new initiatives at a cost of GBP16 million, which also includes new trains and uniforms for employees.

Michael Walker, the company head of commercial development, said, 'We have a series of continued innovations planned throughout the year to ensure we keep upgrading the online functionality for our business and leisure customers.

These changes are the first in a long line of new developments due to launch throughout the year.'
