EasyBus plans airport service expansion
EASYBUS has announced plans to expand its operations and says it is in discussions with vehicle manufacturers for the supply of up to 50 vehicles. Additional services are planned to London airports – at present the company’s only route is between London and Luton airport – and to unspecified regional airports.
Some of the new vehicles will replace the company’s ten existing Mercedes-Benz Sprinters, now two years old.
The new services, like the existing one, will be operated by contractors. Arriva runs the Luton service.
"Tens of millions of passengers a year are flying into the UK at low prices only to find that the rip-off train prices from those UK airports to their own city centres are costing about the same again," said Stelios Haji-Ioannou, EasyBus founder. "EasyBus will continue to make sure that consumers get a good low cost service on the ground as well."
The company is considering buying both mini and midibuses for delivery from January.
