The Stansted Express ferries passengers from Stansted Airport to central London in just 47 minutes 

Stansted Express trains leave from a station directly below Stansted Airport every 15 minutes, reaching the London Underground station of Tottenham Hale in 36 minutes and London Liverpool Street in 47 minutes.

The Stansted Express service is operated by Abellio Greater Anglia in a franchise that will last until 2025.


Unlike the Heathrow Express and the Gatwick Express, which require the purchase of premium tickets to use the services, normal rail tickets are valid on the Stansted Express.

Customers can purchase tickets six months in advance and are able to access their ticket within the Stansted Express app.

During the Summer months capacity on the service is expanded by 5,000 seats to accommodate increased holiday travel. This is made possible by increasing the number of carriages on the trains from eight carriages to twelve.
