Two Million Trips to London's Airports on easyBus

Dépèche transmise le 26 août 2009 par PRNewswire

LONDON, August 26 /PRNewswire/ -- easyBus has just carried its two millionth passenger, a creditable achievement for the fledgling airport transfers operator. London based easyBus, which operates a low-cost express transfer service between central London and Stansted, Luton and Gatwick airports, has reached this milestone by achieving an impressive 25% growth in revenues over the previous year. More than half of easyBus' customers have used the service for the first time this year.

The trend has been helped by consumers trading down in the current recession from high-priced rail companies, who typically charge over GBP16 for a one way journey, compared to easyBus' starting price of just GBP2.

easyBus CEO, Jonathan Crick, said, "Both UK and EU travellers are used to shopping around for cheap flights to Gatwick, Stansted and London Luton () and are not happy to blow their savings on an expensive train ticket or taxi fare. We see this as a long term shift in the way consumers buy their trip to and from the airport well into the future."

easyBus has updated its striking orange bus livery, to add the message "whoever you fly with", just to remind consumers that they don't have to fly with sister-brand easyJet to take advantage of the fantastic value available on easyBus. Booking couldn't be simpler, with easyBus' recently revamped online booking service now offering an even faster booking process. The best fares are available to early bookers and the whole process can be completed in just a couple of minutes.
