FLIBCO.COM INTRODUCES ITS SERVICES IN ITALY,
CHOOSING TURIN AS THE LAUNCH CITY FOR ITS FIRST
Today Flibco.com is proud to announce the opening of its first Italian airport bus connection between the city of Turin and Milan Malpensa Airport.
Everything is ready for flibco.com, a company specialising in airport mobility solutions and already established in several European countries such as Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany, to enter the Italian market. For its Italian debut the company has chosen to link the city of Turin with Milan Malpensa airport, with online sales starting today, Monday 22 March. The bus service itself will be operational from Friday 25 March.
The new connection operated by Flibco.com will be available 7 days a week at a fixed price of 22 euro. Ten departures from Turin to Milan Malpensa and ten departures from Milan Malpensa to Turin will be available every day. To meet the needs of different passengers, the buses will make 3 stops in the city of Turin, at Turin Lingotto station, Turin Porta Susa station and Corso Giulio Cesare.
The route timetables are based on an in-depth analysis of air traffic schedules and allow passengers to arrive or leave the airport without wasting time, in full synchronisation with airline arrivals and departures.
Tickets can be bought on board the bus or with a few clicks on the www.flibco.com website or smartphone app. The online purchase experience is designed to be simple and intuitive and to provide customers with all the information they need for a smooth journey.
The service will be operated using new-generation Euro 6 buses to ensure the lowest possible emissions of polluting gases. The shuttles will also be equipped with all necessary equipment for a comfortable journey: Free Wi-Fi, USB sockets for charging tablets and smartphones, toilets on board and ample legroom.
“We strongly believe in the Italian market, with its great dynamism and a truly enormous tourist heritage – says Tobias Stüber, CEO of flibco.com – For our debut we’ve specially chosen to focus on Turin, a city with a wealth of beauty waiting to be discovered and a local population eager to start travelling again. With our arrival in Italy we aim to offer a modern, high-quality and digitally-oriented service, to support and help revitalise the airport transport sector following the Covid-19 crisis. In our future development plans we aim to extend our service to other Italian airports, improving mobility and helping to revitalise the country’s tourism sector, while supporting the economies of the cities in which we operate”.
With its advanced software for fleet management and online bookings, the Flibco.com platform offers two types of airport service: Door2Gate and Shuttle Bus. Door2Gate is a shuttle service giving passengers transport to the airport from their own homes, sharing the journey with other passengers who need to get to the airport at the same time. This means significant cost savings for passengers and reduced traffic pollution through ride-sharing. Shuttle Bus, on the other hand, is a bus service to and from airports enabling passengers to reach their destinations conveniently, quickly and at a competitive price.
In the post-Covid-19 world Flibco.com has chosen to invest in the Italian market, giving a positive message of hope to the entire tourism sector – which has been particularly affected by the crisis – and supporting the local economy. This is because the company works exclusively with local partners and staff, creating new mobility solutions and job opportunities.
flibco.com is the European specialist for transport to and from airports. Its shuttle services are available at a dozen European airports (including Brussels South Charleroi, Luxembourg, Frankfurt, Budapest, Porto, Lisbon, Tenerife). In serving consumers flibco.com is constantly striving to make everyday life easier for travellers. Travelling with flibco.com also guarantees a comfortable, convenient and environmentally-friendly journey to the airport. On-board Wi-Fi, sockets for charging electronic devices and much more: everything is designed to offer passengers the best possible travel experience. In addition, flibco.com enables passengers to arrive at and depart from airports at times that are synchronised with flight schedules. flibco.com has been a partner of Brussels South Charleroi Airport since 2010. www.flibco.com
