Stansted Express launches new mobile ticket service

STANSTED Express has launched a new and convenient ticketing by customers the opportunity to purchase tickets which can be sent direct to their smartphone.

The new mobile-ticket allows customers to book on-line and receive a text message, from which they 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, or on less-sophisticated mobile phones the text message can simply be shown.

Customers still have the option to book on-line and collect their ticket at the station or use the print at home service but by booking online, passengers can get �1 off the single and �2 off the return fare – and without a booking fee.

Marketing manager for Stansted Express Adrian Warren 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 both 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.”
