Stansted Express Tickets Direct to Mobile or Smartphone

Stansted Express Tickets Direct to Mobile or Smartphone

Stansted Express customers can now purchase tickets online and have them sent direct to their mobile telephone or smartphone via a text message. They can already request tickets through the Print at Home e-ticket service that was introduced last year.

Customers can either use the web address in the text to retrieve the ticket in barcode form, which can then be read by the On-Board Host to verify the ticket, or on less-sophisticated mobile phones the text message can simply be shown to the Host who will then verify via their BlackBerry device.

Customers still have the option to book online and collect their ticket at the station or use the Print at Home service. By booking on-line through the various options now available, passengers can save £1 off the single and £2 off a return fare, and Stansted Express will not charge a booking fee.

Adrian Warren, Marketing Manager for Stansted Express said: “Travelling to and from an airport can at times be a stressful experience and we are continually looking at ways to make travel easier. The new mobile-ticket service is already proving popular in complementing the e-ticket Print at Home service and has been well received by our inbound and outbound audiences in speeding-up their time at the station as they continue with their onward journey. With trains every 15 minutes, it really is the fastest way to arrive and depart Stansted Airport.”
