Bus Éireann’s Expressway coach service has launched a campaign in a bid to entice holidaymakers to choose it as their means of accessing Dublin Airport this summer.
It comes as a direct response to airport operator Daa saying the main car parking facilities at Dublin Airport are hugely booked and don’t have the supply to meet the summer demand.
The Daa has confirmed that 425,000 passengers will pass through Dublin Airport this bank holiday weekend and that all on-site parking spaces are already sold out. Therefore, it is advising airline passengers to avail of public transport when travelling to Dublin Airport, to avoid disappointment and delays.
Expressway has reiterated Daa’s message and is encouraging Dublin-airport bound passengers to avail of the coach service’s seven Dublin Airport routes this weekend.
Expressway chief Andrew Yeats said:
“The June bank holiday weekend is an opportunity for holidaymakers across Ireland to enjoy some rest and relaxation without having to worry about the stress of airport car parking. By choosing the coach when travelling to Dublin Airport this weekend, passengers can start their holiday early knowing that they will get to the airport in comfort and on time.
“Expressway has over 13,000 seats available across the weekend from Counties Louth, Mayo, Sligo, Wexford and Waterford, with fares a fraction of car-parking costs. We encourage passengers to secure their seats now by visiting expressway.ie. Passengers who have booked in advance will be guaranteed priority boarding, a seat on their selected service, and peace of mind knowing that all they have to do is pack their suitcase and grab their passport to get their holiday started. The Real Time function on the Expressway website allows you to see exactly where your coach is.”
