Dublin Express, the high-frequency airport to city shuttle service recently welcomed its one millionth customer since the start of the year.

To mark the occasion, customer number one million Nikolai Lastad and his wife Mariana Zepeda, from Norway were welcomed onboard with the surprise gift of a luxury hamper. 

Rory Fitzgerald, general manager at National Express Ireland said: “It was great to celebrate this milestone with Nikolai and Mariana. It’s amazing to see how far the service has come since the return of air travel. Taking the coach to the airport has never been simpler and our customers tend to agree. Not only is it quick, reliable and affordable, but also good for the environment.”  

Nikolai Lastad added: “It was such a lovely surprise to find out that I’m Dublin Express’ millionth customer. We’ve not long arrived in Dublin, and already everyone has been so kind to us. We can’t wait to explore more of what the city has to offer. Thank you to Dublin Express for kicking our holiday off to such a good start.” 

Dublin Express operates the fastest route between Dublin Airport and the city via the Port Tunnel with services running every 15 minutes. The coach company has grown significantly in the last year with the rapid return of air travel. To meet rising demand, the 784 route was launched, connecting the south of the city to the airport. Together with the 782 route, Dublin Express now serves 15 stops across the city.

Bernard Kavanagh & Sons, Ireland’s largest private coach company, operates the service on behalf of National Express, the UK’s largest coach operator. National Express Ireland recently announced further plans to invest around €30m on a fleet of up to 50 new vehicles over the next five years.
