Aircoach, Ireland’s leading private coach operator, has announced the expansion of its network across Ireland. Starting from the July 29th there will be a new coach service from Galway to Dublin. Currently, Aircoach’s intercity routes include Cork, Belfast, Dublin City, Dublin Airport and its suburbs.
The launch of Aircoach’s new Galway route will see increased connectivity between Galway City and Dublin City and Dublin Airport. Offering ten services per day, Monday to Sunday. Pick-up points will include Galway City, GMIT (Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology), Athlone, Ballinasloe, and Maynooth.
Founded in 2001, Aircoach has been transporting the nation of Ireland over the past 21 years. The announcement of its new route follows a challenging year for the public transport industry. As domestic travel increases and international travel imminent, Aircoach is optimistic for the road ahead according to Dervla McKay, MD of Aircoach.
Commenting on the announcement of Aircoach’s new Galway route, McKay said, “We are delighted to expand our services to Galway and to commence this new route on July 29th. Connectivity between our cities is hugely important and we are proud to now offer our services to even more customers. Establishing a Galway – Dublin route was an important next step for us here at Aircoach and we look forward to the months ahead.”
Aircoach carried 2.7m passengers in 2019
Dervla continued, “A large number of the public rely on public transport services. We are seeing passenger numbers continue to build back up with the reopening of the country. Pre-pandemic in 2019, Aircoach facilitated over 2.7 million passenger journeys alone. As we look ahead, public transport has an important role to play in the coming years in contributing to Ireland’s Climate Action Plan. We look forward to welcoming our new customers from Galway at this exciting time.”
The announcement of Aircoach’s new Galway route follows the recent unveiling of their brand new look, creating a fresh and modern style in line with its ongoing evolution into a hybrid operator. Galwegians travelling with Aircoach can now enjoy its safe, reliable and convenient journeys to Dublin Airport and beyond.
In line with government regulations, Aircoach’s Galway route will operate at 75% capacity at the time of launch and customers will still be required to wear face masks onboard. Tickets can be pre-booked up to two hours in advance of their journey at aircoach.ie.
