Over 29,000 extra seats on Stansted Express this summer

Wednesday, 21 June 2017

Over 29,000 extra seats per week will be available on Stansted Express trains from 22 May.

With demand for Stansted Airport continuing to grow, the additional seats will ensure that holidaymakers travelling to the airport by train can continue to enjoy a comfortable journey.

The additional seats – over 5,000 every day – have been made possible by increasing the number of carriages on the trains where possible, taking many trains from eight carriages to 12.

Eleni Jordan, Head of Sales, said, “As demand continues to grow we are delighted to be able to offer extra seats on our services this summer – and from just £7 for a great service which includes an easy online booking service, comfortable, spacious and modern trains, free Wi-Fi, unlimited baggage allowance, free charge points and no booking fee, Stansted Express is perfect for those who can’t wait to start their trip and want to travel in style for less.”

Get there quicker and save with Stansted Express - 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 Wi-Fi.

With trains every 15 minutes and a journey time of just 47 minutes from London providing the fastest to Stansted Airport, recent official figures have demonstrated that it is also the most popular form of transport, above the coach or car.
