The registration of the new service follows a £2.5M investment in a fleet of nine new Irizar i6-bodied Scania K360EB4 coaches for the RA1 service, which was launched in January this year.

Passengers benefit from free WiFi, USB charging points, air-conditioning, white LED Hanover destination equipment and internal passenger screens to display live departure information for each terminal at Heathrow Airport.
