Paddington Station in London

Heathrow Express announced the retirement of its Class 332 trains and debuted its new fleet of Class 387s.

Initially introduced in 1997 and then moving to full service in 1998, the Class 332s trains were used by Heathrow Express for over 22 years.

The high-speed service operates trains from Paddington Station in London to Heathrow Airport in 15 minutes.

The new fleet consists of 48 carriages, making up six trains total. Each train has 374 seats. Although they are not new, having been in service elsewhere since September 2016, the trains have been refurbished for their new mission with new seats and seating options.

The new trains will offer passengers two classes of service, Express Class and Business First. The Business First carriage has 44 seats.

Some of the amenities the new C387 trains offer include at-seat USB power sockets, Express TV with BBC World News and weather, complimentary Wi-Fi, and worktables in BusinessFirst.
