Stagecoach-owned megabus.com has introduced a new stop at Manchester airport.

The operator’s M11 route will make four stops a day at Manchester airport, providing its first direct links to the terminal with daily departures to Manchester from Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth, Glasgow, Preston, Birmingham and London.

The new changes are:

  •  M11 service departs Aberdeen at 0440hrs daily and Glasgow at 0820hrs and arrives at Manchester Airport at 1315hrs, before continuing to London, arriving at 1750hrs;
  •  M11 service leaves Glasgow daily at 2345hrs arriving at Manchester airport at 0530hrs and arriving in London at 1100hrs;
  •  M11 leaves London daily at 0800hrs, arriving at Manchester Airport at 1210hrs and reaching Glasgow at 1740hrs and Aberdeen at 2045hrs; and
  •  M11 service leaves London at 2345hrs daily and arrives at Manchester airport at 0430hrs, reaching Glasgow at 0905hrs.
  • The enhanced routes will feature coaches bearing the blue and yellow megabus.com livery, offering free WiFi and power points.

Operations Director for megabus.com’s Scottish services, Peter Knight, said: “We are delighted to be making these amendments to existing routes allowing passengers direct access to Manchester Airport for the first time.

“With the continuing expansion of flights to and from Manchester Airport and the increase in both trans-atlantic and low-cost flights, we hope that this will be a welcome addition, particularly for customers travelling from Scottish destinations.”

The improvements to the current routes follow the introduction of new services to both Heathrow and Gatwick, introduced by megabus.com in April.
