First new National Express double-deck super coaches

Posted in Industry news

National Express has re-introduced double-decker coaches last month to the fleet, to allow it to cope with growing number of customers.

The first double-deck coaches to be used by company for some years will have 79 seats - making space for 27 more people than the current standard vehicles - while retaining the current levels of comfort. The double-deck coaches boast luxury leather seats with tables, power sockets, free Wi-Fi and a toilet.

Five of the batch will be operated by National Express’ on its popular line between London Victoria and London's Luton Airport. The sixth is going to its subcontractor Edwards Coaches for use on the South Wales-London corridor.

We managed to take pictures of the two coaches supporting the A1 route from Luton to London.

FYI: Not everyone knows or remembers, but National Express had previously used such vehicles in the UK. Unfortunately, in 2007 there was a tragic accident and National Express had to withdrawn its entire fleet of double-decker coaches. The horrific motorway crash that left two dead and 66 passengers injured.

Whether you are heading to the airport on holiday, or visiting family/friends, National Express coaches are great value way to get there. Do not hesitate and buy a ticket now.

Tickets now on sale at Thumbs up for new vehicles during passenger trials :)

I'm not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
