We are delighted to announce that with the increased demand for travel to and from Heathrow Airport since we reintroduced our RailAir coach services, RailAir 1 and RailAir 2 will now operate hourly from Saturday 25 July 2020.
When travelling to the airport, it could be quicker and cheaper to change at Reading. Take the RailAir coach direct to your terminal and save having to travel into London and back out again.
With coaches every 20 minutes, from 04:00 to 23:00, 7 days a week (including Public holidays), it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
when you buy your tickets, choose ‘RailAir’, along with the Heathrow terminal you are flying from

And, if you’ve got time before your coach leaves, why not visit the RailAir lounge, opposite M&S. You’ll find free Wi-Fi, charging points, newspapers, and a range of hot and cold drinks.
