Addition of 22 bus connections at Schiphol Airport by FlixBus

FlixBus, a German coach service, will include Schiphol Airport to their international network, commencing 6th April. The bus company will launch 22 new bus connections to the Dutch airport in the consequent months. One of the biggest European airports will be accessible by FlixBus all day, although at a low frequency.

FlixBus adds Schiphol to its network

On 6th April, FlixBus will have eight direct connections to Schiphol Airport from Lille, Brussels, Paris, Hannover, Halle, Leipzig, Dresden and Prague. In May and June, the company will add another fourteen connections from The Hague, Rotterdam, Eindhoven, Heerlen, Aachen, Antwerp, Cologne, Bonn, Koblenz, Karlsruhe, Stuttgart, Ulm, Augsburg, and Munich.

It mostly concerns existing bus routes to Amsterdam, which are extended to Schiphol, says the FlixBus spokeswoman Rosa Donat, though the frequency of buses going to the Dutch airport will be low. Donat: “We will travel on a daily basis, for sure. We’ve been providing travel to other big airports for a longer period of time. It always was a matter of time before Schiphol would be added to our network.”

FlixBus already takes travelers from Netherlands to airports in Brussels, Paris, and Frankfurt. The bus company recently started collaborating with Air Canada and South African Airlines. Travelers with those airlines can transit to airports with FlixBus without any charges. The travel company is planning to expand that service.

As of March, FlixBus was added to Google Map’s planner, though until now, that information is not real time. In addition to long-distance bus services, this app also provides information on flights and train schedules.

FlixBus was founded by three entrepreneurs in Germany in the year 2011 with the aim of making sustainable bus travel both comfortable and affordable. Today, the green mobility provider is Europe's largest long-distance bus network. Sixty million passengers have traveled via FlixBus generally and twenty million in 2015 alone.
