Railair is really the generic term used to describe bus and coach services linking airports to the national railway network stations and not a single company as the name may imply. If you purchase your bus ticket with your rail ticket for the Railair stations you will be able to buy a through ticket price for the whole rail/coach journey with a Railair ticket. Rail Interchange stations are those that have joint rail and bus linked routes.
The Railair routes normally all use stands 1-3 of the Central Coach Station which is on the side of the station away from the main stands. You can purchase Railair provides links to Feltham, Reading, Woking and Watford Junction stations.
Services to Woking and Reading also use the Terminal 5 bus station as well as the central bus station.
 The 285 and 490 bus from the central bus station links with Feltham Station which is around 5 miles from Heathrow.
The Heathrow-Feltham Railair service offers transfers to Terminals 2 & 3 via the central bus station. For Terminal 4 you will be changing at Hatton Cross. For terminal 5 the service uses stand 9.
For travel on the 285/490 Railair route either but a through ticket for the rail network which includes the bus ride. Alternatively if you have a Travelcard which includes fare Zone 6 this covers the ride. Finally you can simply pay for a single fare on board the bus.
The bus journey takes from 20 to 25 minutes at intervals of up to every 10 minutes at peak hours.
The 285 bus is actually part of the London bus network, runs 24 hours a day, and its full route is:
Heathrow Airport Central Bus Station > Harlington Corner > Hatton Cross Station > Feltham Station Interchange > Hampton Sainsburys > Hampton Hill > High Street/Hampton Road > Teddington Hogarth > Hampton Wick Station > Kingston Cromwell Road Bus Station
