Gatwick Express Launches New Barcode Ticket Scanners

Gatwick Express, a UK-based company that provides a rail to air service between Victoria station and Gatwick Airport in the UK, has launched new barcode ticket scanners for its passengers.

The new barcode ticket scanners will assist customers in avoiding long queues and enable them to have their prints of e-tickets or mobile tickets scanned at the gates. The scanners are installed at the gates of London Victoria and Gatwick Airport stations, and the service is available to people that buy their tickets at the company website,

David Metherell, the company marketing manager, said, ‘The new barcode scanners ensure that customers, who book in advance and select the ‘print at home’ option or send their tickets to their UK mobile, can move more easily from their start point to their final destination. With our excellent online discounts, this means that web booking is both cheaper and more convenient.’

The company, which recently launched its mobile website, allowing passengers to buy a ticket from their smart phones, is also offering savings for travelling passengers. Customers purchasing a minimum of two return tickets from the website will pay a discounted rate of £43.10, providing a saving of 35 percent on full fare tickets. The train travel is in air-conditioned coaches, and drinks and light refreshments are served to passengers in their seats.

Trains travelling between Victoria station and Gatwick Airport depart every 15 minutes, and offer a journey time of 30 minutes. For more information, please visit
