Check-in for your Flight at Paddington Station

Paddington Check-in Kiosks for Heathrow Express


Checking-in at the airport is so yesterday!

The concept of making the idea of “catching a flight” a more streamlined and indeed effortless procedure does considerably add value to the overall customer travel experience. The latest to emerge is “offsite Check-in services” allowing travellers to check-in before they reach the airport like at a railway station or hotel. Already successful in countries like USA, Hong Kong and Switzerland, this style of checking-in pre-airport arrival is catching on and has even reached London.

Paddington is the first UK railway station to offer an “off-site check-in service” between Heathrow Airport and Central London via the Heathrow Express Train. The self service check-in kiosks and flight information screens allow you check-in for your flight and print your ticket before boarding the train. The facilities that have been designed to make travelling by air more appealing by giving customers the option to choose their seat and avoid the long queues for checking–in at the airport. Boasting a journey time of under 20 minutes one way, it is most certainly the quickest way to get to Heathrow Airport from Central London especially during peak hours. Presently the following airlines operate Check-in services at Paddington Station, but more will be available very soon.

Air Canada, Air France, American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Czech Airlines, Finnair, Iberia, Kenya Airways, KLM, Lufthansa, United Airlines
