The new Bristol Flyer

We now have our great new fleet of Volvo B7RLE single-deckers for the Bristol Airport Flyer service and they are ready to enter service.

Based on our standard Wrights product these vehicles have leather seats, air conditioning, luggage racks and a great new livery advertising the service.

They replace the current fleet of coaches on this service which is operated on behalf of Bristol Airport.


Research has shown that passengers on this service would prefer the easy step-free entrance and the security of on-board luggage over the current arrangement on coaches. There is no motorway used on this service so there is no benefit to the higher speed of coaches whilst the faster boarding especially in the congestion of Bristol Temple Meads station will be beneficial.

  5. John.

    Not all coaches are equal, we have Mercedes/Chrysler Coaches and Volvo's in Dublin with Wifi, leather seating climate control, amongst other things, anything else would be a downgrade for us :)
