Fares now start from just £7 per person each way when booked in advance or when four people make a return journey together. Standard single fares are now only £16.60, or £28 return between London Liverpool Street and Stansted Airport.
The new fares put Stansted Express amongst the cheapest Stansted airport transport providers, while retaining a high quality service which includes fully flexible travel on any train on date of travel (and return tickets are valid for up to one month), no hidden fees, unlimited baggage allowance and free wifi.
With trains every 15 minutes providing the fastest link between central London, Tottenham Hale and Stansted Airport, recent official figures have demonstrated that it is also the most popular form of transport, above the coach or car. The new offering is expected to appeal to those looking for a great deal, who need to get to and from the airport fast, without compromising on quality and good customer service.
Best prices are always online at www.stanstedexpress.com, where there are a range of other services available such as discounted hotels, theatre and attractions booking service, for added convenience and value.
Commercial director, Andrew Camp, commented: “People choosing to transfer to the airport by rail arrive quicker and in comfort, and now they’ll pay even less – from just £7 for a great service which includes an easy online booking service, comfortable, spacious and modern trains, free wifi, unlimited baggage allowance and free charge points and no booking fee – perfect for those who can’t wait to start their trip and want to travel in style for less.”
Daniel Gallo, Stansted Airport’s Customer Service & Security Director, said: “Stansted is already one of the UK’s busiest airports serving over 24 million passengers a year, and with the airport forecast to grow by more than any London airport in the next ten years, it’s vital that passengers have access to reliable, frequent and affordable transport options to and from the airport. The announcement of new lower fares is fantastic news as the Stansted Express not only offers some of the most modern and high quality trains serving any UK airport but now has the added benefit of very competitive and great value for money fare choices to make Stansted even more attractive to passengers wishing to take full advantage of the 180 destinations on offer at Stansted.”
Journey time to/from London Liverpool Street is just 47 minutes or 36 minutes from Tottenham Hale (also in London) and the train station at the airport is directly under the airport terminal, just a 2-minute walk to check-in.
