Heathrow Express makes its mark with an anniversary stamp collection

Heathrow Express is marking 25 years of shuttling passengers to and from central London with a campaign featuring a series of bespoke passport stamps.

Inked by St Luke’s, the campaign focuses on another significant milestone, charting one couple's journey from strangers to marriage in three stamps.

Handcrafted for an authentic ink-on-paper texture, the stamp series will be displayed on escalator panels across the high-speed line into June.

Dan Edwards, Heathrow Express business lead, said: “Many of life’s most exciting adventures begin at the airport, and over the past 25 years, the Heathrow Express has played an essential role in getting passengers to the airport in speed and comfort. These engaging passport stamp stories bring that to life in a charming and relatable way.”

Richard Denney, joint chief creative officer at St Luke’s, said: “When you open up your passport and take a look at the stamps inside, not only do they remind you of where you have been but also of the important moments that happened whilst away. And for millions of passengers over the last 25 years, Heathrow Express has been the start of those unforgettable trips.”

A second issue of stamps is planned for August and September, celebrating the popular route between Paddington and Heathrow, which has been in operation for 25 years.
