Title: New Oxford-Heathrow Terminal 5 Coach Link
Post by: Lee on February 09, 2008, 09:05:22 am
The Oxford Bus Company will serve the new terminal from its opening day, on Thursday, March 27, and is spending more than ^3m on a fleet of new low-emission coaches for its X70 Airline service to London's main airport (link below.)

Oxford will be one of the first cities to have a direct link to the new ^4.3bn terminal, which is expected to be used by 30 million passengers a year and will be the home base for British Airways.

Louisa Weeks, the company's general manager, said:

Quote
"We will be running a service up to every 20 minutes to and from Oxford - that's the frequency of services we usually only run during the summer months.

Once Terminal 5 opens, the X70 will no longer serve Terminal 4. Passengers will have to travel to the Heathrow central bus station, then catch a shuttle train to reach Terminal 4.
