Aircoach Ireland’s leading private bus and coach operator, is investing €2.4 million in its Cork-Dublin route, with the imminent introduction of seven new Plaxton Panthers on Volvo B11 platforms. It demonstrates the company’s strong commitment to Cork, providing a 24/7, transport service between these two major urban centres and Dublin Airport. This announcement, which is on the back of sustained growth across the Aircoach business, brings total investment in new vehicles in the past 12 months to over €4.5 million.

Commenting on the investment Dervla McKay, Managing Director of Aircoach, commented: “The Cork Dublin route is a very important one for us, connecting our two main cities and Dublin Airport, 24 hours a day. We are delighted to be able to invest in this route and it is a strong indicator of how our services are being utilised by a wide range of passengers from business people to students, leisure travellers to those travelling for one off events in Cork or Dublin. Investing in new coaches and technology has enabled us to grow over the last number of years, improve the customer experience and we are looking forward to introducing more innovations in 2019. “

Commenting on trends and the changing needs of passengers she added: “We cater for a wide mix of passengers, all with varying needs. Reliability of service and travelling in comfort at an affordable price are key deliverables, but the modern passenger also wants great WiFi and easy, flexible online booking and payment options.”
