National Express subsidiary Xplore Dundee is set to begin operating its new coach service between Dundee city centre and Edinburgh airport on Sunday 9 June.

Known as the Edinburgh Airport Xpress, the service will be run under the Xplore More banner, with prices starting at £18 for an adult return.

It will be the first non-stop service between the two destinations, delivering passengers direct to the terminal. Coaches will run every 90 minutes, seven days a week, with the first bookings opening this week. Managing Director Christine McGlasson said: “We’re really excited to bring this brand-new service to Dundee.

“There’s no other link to Edinburgh airport which will take you from the heart of the city straight to the terminal, with no stops or connections along the way.

“Buses will start running in the early hours of the morning until well after midnight to make sure holidaymakers get to the sun and business travellers can catch early morning flights.

“We hope visitors to Scotland will also find it a really useful and great value way to get to Dundee and discover what makes our city the new must-see destination.

“I’m certain this will enhance Dundee’s profile as one of Scotland’s key tourist hotspots, as well as offering something special to local people who travel for business or pleasure.”
