FlixBus resumes international operations
New routes added to intercity operator’s roster
FlixBus has added new direct routes to and from London Heathrow Airport. It has also resumed international journeys to France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
After a significant domestic expansion this summer, it has now added Cambridge to its UK network. Since re-launching in the UK in April 2021, FlixBus has tripled its local network to meet increased demand for domestic travel. The coach travel provider offered close to 60 direct routes between almost 30 UK cities, including Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester and Sheffield by the summer high season.
“Besides building our network within the UK, we also find it important to keep Britain and continental Europe well connected” – Andreas Schorling, Managing Director of FlixBus UK
Andreas Schorling, Managing Director of FlixBus UK, said: “Since spring we’ve been continuously improving our new domestic offer and now we are covering numerous destinations in England, Wales and Scotland. Besides building our network within the UK, we also find it important to keep Britain and continental Europe well connected and provide affordable and sustainable mobility opportunities for international passengers. Thus, we are thrilled that in September, we could resume our cross-border operations as well.”
