Heathrow Express Launches UK’S First Train Ticket BlackBerry App. This free app features live service updates as well as the ability 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 stated: “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.”

About Heathrow Express:

Heathrow Express, the fastest way to travel between central London and Heathrow Airport, has now launched an application allowing you to book your journey and pay for your tickets in less than 30 seconds using your Blackberry or Android.

As well as the facility to purchase tickets, the free app also provides live service updates so that you are kept informed at all times. The app is available for BlackBerry, Android and Java-enabled mobile phones.

You can receive your ticket with 2D bar code and reference number direct within your app on your phone, so there is no need to queue to collect your ticket at the station. Our friendly on board staff will then scan and validate your ticket when you next travel.

To fast-track the payment process you can have a personal account within the app, which provides an option to store your details and preferred payment method. A history of your previous journeys is automatically created for your records.

Personal information and card details are securely protected via high-level data encryption. Your payment card 3-digit security code is not stored and is required each time you book, so your card details are protected. This secure app has been accredited by Barclays and is PCI DSS compliant (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). It accepts all major credit and debit cards, except Maestro.

For Blackberry users, this brand new free app is available to download from our website. Blackberry users will soon be able to download the app from Blackberry World.

You can now enjoy the most seamless way to book your journey to Heathrow Airport with Heathrow Express.
