Heathrow installs journey calculator screens at baggage claim belts

Travel News 01 May 2015

Screens have been installed at Heathrow Terminal 2 showing passengers live price and journey time comparisons between taxis and the airport’s train service to central London.

The screens - a world first - combine real-time traffic, weather and Heathrow Express train service information into one user-friendly data feed, or ‘journey comparison generator,’ at the terminal’s baggage reclaim zone.

The aim is to help customers make the fastest and cheapest choice of onward travel.
