New: For LHR, get boarding pass at Paddington Station…only 4 Airlines for now.

December 3rd, 2009 | Categories: General | Tags: , , , ,

Four airlines now allow you to get your boarding pass at Paddington Station’s Heathrow Express.
…for now, only Delta Air Lines, Finnair, Iberia and United Airlines.

However, we recommend doing this online, if you can, before leaving your London hotel or home.

Heathrow Express has introduced airport check-in (not of luggage check-in!) facilities and flight information screens at Paddington Station.

Heathrow Express managing director, Richard Robinson, said, “People do not always get the opportunity to print their boarding pass before getting to the airport. By introducing this service at Paddington, customers have the opportunity to print their boarding pass and avoid the hassle of queuing for check-in at the airport.”

He added, “Customers can then proceed direct to their airline’s designated bag-drop if they have hold luggage. There are three Common User Self Service (CUSS) check-in kiosks located next to the Heathrow Express ticket office at Paddington, which will initially be available only to passengers travelling with Delta Air Lines, Finnair, Iberia and United Airlines.

Meanwhile the flight information screens, showing all of the day’s flights, the airlines operating them and the terminals from which they depart, are situated near the Heathrow Express ticket office and half way down platforms six and seven, which are dedicated solely to Heathrow Express services.”
