Heathrow Plans New Rail LinkOne of the most relaxing ways to get to the airport is to travel by train, so news that BAA is planning to build a new rail link to Heathrow airport will be welcomed by many travellers.
If BAA gets the go-ahead following public consultation, Heathrow Airtrack will provide a new rail link between Heathrow and Staines. The link will also give access to the National Rail network to the south west of the airport, including stations at London Waterloo, Guildford and Reading.
