Transport operator easyBus is to offer a new service linking Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales with Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA).
Run by businessman Andrew Martin, easyBus already runs a bus link connecting LJLA with Manchester Airport and the new service will ferry people to and from Chester, Wrexham, Oswestry, and Shrewsbury.
From Monday, May 14, there will be 16 departures each day and seats start from £4.99 one-way. Similar to the budget airline model, the earlier passengers book, the cheaper the journey.
Mr Martin said: “Until now there have been no public transport links to Liverpool John Lennon Airport from West Cheshire and North Wales, so we are delighted to launch our new easyBus service.
“We have been already operating a successful service to Manchester Airport for the last 18 months so our new service to Liverpool Airport is a natural progression. Good bus links to airports are vital for both leisure and business travellers and we are pleased to be providing this service to the community”.
Robin Tudor, head of PR for LJLA, added: “Thousands of passengers travel to Liverpool John Lennon Airport each year from areas served by this new bus service which will now give travellers an attractive alternative to the car or taxi.
“Likewise tourists wanting to visit Chester can now fly to Liverpool knowing there is direct, easy, onward access from right outside the airport terminal.”
