The station is served by local services operated by Great Western Railway. In preparation for the introduction of Elizabeth line services, the operation of the station was transferred to MTR Crossrail on behalf of Transport for London at the end of 2017.
Network Rail is developing plans for the Western Rail Approach to Heathrow. This is a new rail link to provide a direct service to the airport from Reading and Slough. The new line is proposed to leave the Great Western main line just east of Langley, connecting by tunnel to existing platforms at Heathrow's Terminal 5 station.
Adjacent to the station is the site of the former Langley Oil Terminal, last operated by EWS.
