UK rail passengers can now use their iPhones as train tickets thanks to a new app from Heathrow Express, which has launched the first app to enable people to receive train tickets directly to their iPhone in the UK, the first such app to be launched here.

Richard Robinson, Heathrow Express managing director stated: “Developing an app which allows iPhone users to book and receive Heathrow Express tickets directly continues our strategic approach to offer fully functional mobile ticketing. We have used the smooth interface and exceptional visual quality of the iPhone to create an easy to use app which is as seamless as our service.”

The free app features live service updates as well as the facility to purchase tickets. This secure app has been accredited by Barclays and is PCI DSS compliant (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) – the international standard for data security. It accepts all major credit and debit cards, except Maestro.
