New buses with free Wi-Fi internet for GlasgowFlyer route
Passengers using Glasgow Airport will be whisked to the city centre on a fleet of new buses featuring free Wi-Fi internet access after Arriva spent £1.5million on 11 new coaches for its GlasgowFlyer fast airport - city centre route.
The bus company launched the 24-hour GlasgowFlyer link in July as part of a deal with BAA. The route links the airport and Buchanan Bus Station via the M8 for less than £4, with 8 coaches an hour at peak times. In addition to high-speed wireless internet access, the new coaches provide journey information.
A spokesman for Arriva Scotland said: 'We are delighted to be launching 11 new high spec, environmentally friendly vehicles on our GlasgowFlyer service. We hope that airport staff, visitors and the people of Glasgow make good use of the benefits of this premium bus service and leave their car at home when travelling to or from the airport.'
Glasgow Airport boss Gordon Dewar welcomed the investment. He said: 'The service has exceeded our expectations and it is proving to be hugely popular. The new buses will offer greater levels of comfort and a smooth, efficient journey between the airport and city centre.'
A single ticket on the route costs £3.95; a return £5.95 and an open return £6.30. Airport staff and regular travellers can buy a 10-journey ticket for £28.
