Aircoach launches first ever English routes
First Group-owned Aircoach has launched its first ever English routes, with a new airport service between Leicester and Birmingham Airport.
The service runs from St Margaret’s Bus Station (stand SZ) in the centre of Leicester, picking up at Fosse Park and then direct to Birmingham Airport, seven days a week, every hour, 24 hours a day. When departing from Birmingham Airport back to Leicester, the stop is conveniently located right outside the main terminal.
Tickets start at £9 and unbooked seats on journeys will be available for people who turn up on the day at St Margaret’s and Fosse Park at a cost of £16 one way. There is a free 15kg luggage allowance and a small bag that can be taken on board and child buggies can also be carried at no charge.
Richard Gill, Commercial Director at Birmingham Airport said: “The new Aircoach service connecting Leicester easily with Birmingham Airport will provide a convenient and cost-effective travel option for both our leisure and business customers. This seamless journey that starts at St Margaret’s Bus Station in Leicester, with a pick-up point at the popular Fosse Park, then direct to Birmingham Airport terminal, will become very busy over the coming months.”
Aircoach has already established its brand in Ireland, providing journeys every day to and from Dublin Airport linking Cork, Belfast, Galway and three routes to Dublin City Centre and onward to South Dublin and Wicklow.
