Why take the train to Stansted Airport?

Less time travelling

With a journey time of just 50 minutes to Liverpool Street, there’s no quicker way to travel from Central London to Stansted Airport.

More space

You don’t need to stress about social distancing. We’re making our trains as long as possible, so passengers can spread out. We’re constantly monitoring passenger numbers so that we can make trains longer or increase the frequency if necessary.

Time to suit you

Our trains run every 30 minutes throughout the day, and every 30 minutes in the early morning and late evening.

No queueing

Breakaway from the herd and leave the lines behind. Book ahead and download your eticket straight to your phone. We don’t charge any additional fees and you’re covered by your price guarantee when you book through our website or mobile app.

Maximum flexibility

You can take any train at any time without pre-booking – just in case things don’t go to plan. Our open returns are fully flexible, so you can travel up to 30 days from departure at no extra cost.

Straight from A to B

You can forget lengthy interchanges or long treks to the terminal. Our trains run straight into London and Stansted airport.
