Gold Card Star Alliance Members enjoy free Heathrow Express Upgrades

Travel News 01 Feb 2016

Star Alliance and Heathrow Express have teamed up to offer Star Alliance Gold Card holders a special benefit when travelling on Heathrow Express trains – a free upgrade. 

Customers just need to purchase a standard class single or return ticket for the Heathrow Express, the fastest rail link between the airport and London Paddington Station.

Once on the train, customers can choose any available seat in Business First Class and show both their train ticket and Star Alliance Gold Card to the attendant.

Amenities in Business First include complimentary newspapers and magazines, more leg room, wider seats, a personal table, a power socket at each seat and on-board TV.

This special promotion is open to all frequent flyers holding Gold Status in any of the 21 Frequent Flyer Programmes offered by the Star Alliance member airlines.

The offer will run from 15 February until further notice.
