The South West Falcon, connecting Devon with Somerset and Bristol, launched less than a month ago and is already proving popular with commuters, leisure travellers, shoppers, students and Bristol Airport customers. The introduction of online booking will further enhance the service, providing reassurance for customers who want to plan their journeys and get the best deal by booking ahead.
Managing Director of Stagecoach South West, Bob Dennison, commented, “Some of our customers – especially those with onward connections – have told us that they would like the reassurance of having pre-booked their seats. I’m therefore delighted to confirm our partnership with megabus.com and hope this will encourage even more people to fly the South West Falcon.”
Liz McNaughton, Commercial Manager for Bristol Airport, added, “It’s fantastic passengers flying from the airport can now book seats on the Falcon, further enhancing the options for getting to and from this busy regional hub.”
