Serving the world’s busiest international airport and carrying more than five million passengers per year, Heathrow Express is one of the most successful high-speed air-rail links in the world. The service carries more than 16,000 passengers a day on the 15 minute journey between Heathrow Airport and central London’s Paddington station.
