NATIONAL Express has unveiled an enhanced coach network adding thousands of new seats from Swindon – including services to Heathrow Airport.

The coach operator is introducing a new and improved timetable between Swindon to London and Heathrow Airport which equates to thousands of extra seats every year.

Eight daily services will run between Swindon and Heathrow Airport and there will be nine daily journeys to the capital.

Tom Stables, the managing director of National Express UK Coaches, said: “We’re really pleased to make it even easier for people to take advantage of affordable travel between London and Swindon.

“Tens of thousands of extra seats are available and we hope they will provide a welcome boost.”

About a third of all National Express coach journeys are to airports with customers benefiting from value straight-to-the-terminal travel. Services to London leave daily from Swindon Bus Station.
