Significant disruption to Heathrow Connect and Heathrow Express services over 2015 Christmas & New Year

There will be significant disruption to Heathrow Connect and Heathrow Express train services from London Paddington to Heathrow Airport over the Christmas and New Year Holiday.

Christmas Eve – Thursday 24 December 2015

Both Heathrow Connect and Heathrow Express services will finish early on Christmas Eve.

The last Heathrow Express train from London Paddington to Heathrow Terminal 5 departs at 20:25. The last Heathrow Express train from Heathrow Terminal 5 to London Paddington departs at 21:12. The inter-terminal transfer service will run until 23:00.

The last Heathrow Connect train from London Paddington departs at 21:33. The last Heathrow Connect service from Heathrow Terminal 5 to London Paddington departs at 20:51.

Other public transport services including the Tube and mainline suburban and long distance rail services are also likely to end early.

Christmas Day – Friday 25 December 2015 – Monday 28 December 2015

There will be no Heathrow Connect or Heathrow Express service at all from Christmas Day to Monday 28 December. This is due to Crossrail engineering works.

In terms of alternative public transport options, the Tube and mainline suburban and long distance rail services do not run on Christmas Day. Suburban and long distance rail services operate very limited services (many operators not at all) on Boxing Day.

Tuesday 29 December 2015 – Saturday 2 January 2016

The Heathrow Connect will run a revised service and trains will not stop at Hanwell or West Ealing.

Heathrow Express will run a revised service with trains departing every 30 minutes instead of every 15 minutes.

The first service from London Paddington to Heathrow Terminal 5 departs at 05:25 and then at 55 and 25 minutes past the hour with the last service at 23:25 (19:25 on Saturday 2 January 2016).

The first service from Heathrow Terminal 5 to London Paddington departs at 05:27 and then at 57 and 27 minutes past the hour with the last service at 23:27 (18:27 on Saturday 2 January 2016).

Full details are on the Heathrow Connect and Heathrow Express websites.

Please note that is often the case that engineering works can over-run so please check directly with Heathrow Connect and Express before you travel. Please also be aware that there is also significant disruption to Gatwick Express services over the Christmas period.
