Heathrow Terminal 5 to have Elizabeth Line services in 2019 

Heathrow announced last week that it had agreed a deal with the Government over Crossrail services to bolster the airport’s rail connectivity. 

The airport has agreed a plan with the department for transport (DfTand Transport for London (TfL) for the Crossrail services to extend into Terminal 5, with the number of trains going into the airport increasing from 18 an hour to 22 an hour in 2019.

Of those, six will be on the Elizabeth Line. Heathrow, TfL and the DfT are also looking into whether more can be added in the future, with a joint feasibility study underway assessing whether another two Elizabeth Line trains could be added per hour.
