FlixBus celebrates new Welsh services
FlixBus is launching a coach with a special Welsh-themed livery into service.
The graphics have been unveiled to celebrate the company’s new routes from Wales. Operated by Newport Transport, the services link Welsh cities, Bristol, London and London Airports Heathrow and Gatwick.
The coach has been decorated with the Welsh flag, as well as iconic symbols of Wales, including Yr Wyddfa and Castell Coch. The vehicle will be seen on new routes between Swansea, Cardiff, Bridgend, Newport and Port Talbot.
The travel tech company will also begin new regular daily connections between Wales, Bristol, London Heathrow and London Gatwick Airports. More services are due to launch later this year. The additional routes mean the FlixBus network now serves over 60 destinations across the UK.
“We believe travel is for everyone, and our mission is to grow to become the largest coach network in the country in the next five years”
Andreas Schorling, Managing Director of FlixBus in the UK, said: “This summer is the perfect time to be launching our network to more Welsh cities than ever before, and we’re delighted to expanding our offering to offer frequent, affordable airport transfer options for our passengers.
“We believe travel is for everyone, and our mission is to grow to become the largest coach network in the country in the next five years. From supporting tourism into the UK, staycations and day trips, or affordable options to major airports, we’re aiming to be the number one choice for passengers.”
Scott Pearson, Managing Director of Newport Transport, said: “We’re very proud of our heritage and we’re delighted to be flying the flag for Wales as part of the FlixBus network.”
