The Heathrow Express which runs between London Paddington and Heathrow Airport has announced that its one-way advance tickets will be available every day of the week from £5.50 one way.
The new ticketing could benefit the 5 million passengers who travel Monday to Friday each year.
The new fixed date fares means a weekday ticket could cost less than half the price of the previous weekday tickets, which were between £12.50 and £16.50 depending on how far in advance they were booked
Fares will now be available for £5.50, £7.50, £10.00, £12.50, £15.00 or £16.50 depending on availability.
A new Heathrow Express website and smartphone app were launched earlier this week. The new tickets can be booked via the website or app and an additional 5 languages have been added.

What did the officials say?
Les Freer, Heathrow Express Director, said:
“Rolling out our £5.50 one-way fare across the week means thousands more customers can travel for less with Heathrow Express.
“Speed and convenience is crucial to Heathrow Express customers who have rated us top in the National Rail Passenger Survey three times in a row and our new website and app delivers on these too.
“Complete with five additional languages, quick booking and an industry first ticket indicator our new platforms reflect our dedication to offering an industry leading customer experience from booking to travelling.”
