News in brief:

Heathrow to end all Free Travel Zone bus travel on Friday

Regular readers will know that Heathrow announced last year that it was ending its financial support for the Free Travel Zone.

As well as subsidising employee transport to and from the airport, this allowed anyone to use the local buses around Heathrow without charge. You were most likely to use it when travelling between the airport and one of the off-airport hotels.

The removal of free bus travel has been happening in stages. It was removed from routes 4, 7, 8, 442 and 555 on 1st January.

Heathrow has now confirmed that free bus travel will end on all remaining routes on 12th June.

Full details are on this page of the Heathrow website.

    Got an email from Amex indicated that I have used the economist subscriptions offer. Hopefully I will see what is going to be happened in the next few days.

      Did you used their link? Or the BA one? When did you subscribe? I’m still fighting with Amex, but probably I’ll just cancel the subscription. Thanks!

    Following my comment here at 09:44 yesterday, I have an update.
    I received an email from The Economist subs advising they were sorry to see me go, but if I renew today then here’s a special offer.
    “If you would like to stay connected over the next 12 months, we have a special offer for you. Restart your subscription to The Economist today and save 50% on an annual subscription. You’ll pay just £89.50 for a one year digital subscription, instead of our usual price of £179.00 or just £107.50 instead of £215.00 for a print-and-digital subscription.”
    I couldn’t sign up fast enough at that price!
