Aircoach has today resumed limited services on their Cork (704X) and Belfast (705X) routes. 

Both services will operate seven days a week, however, in order to comply with social distancing, all coaches will strictly operate with only 23/24 seats available for purchase depending on the coach layout.

Customers are advised to book online in advance to guarantee a seat. 

In March, Aircoach’s services ground to a halt as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Prior to this, Aircoach operated five 24-hour services connecting Dublin Airport, Dublin City Centre, Belfast, Cork, Greystones, Bray, Leopardstown, Killiney and Dalkey.

The resumption of the 704X service will once again depart and return to Patrick's Quay in Cork City travelling to Dublin City Centre (Bachelors Walk) and Dublin Airport. 

The 705X City Express service from Belfast's Glengall Street to Dublin Airport and Dublin City Centre (O’Connell Street) will also resume with a reduced number of services.

All other services will remain temporarily suspended until further notice.

Speaking ahead of the return of services, Dervla McKay, Managing Director of Aircoach stressed that the health and safety of drivers and passengers is of paramount importance. 

"The transport industry has been hit hard over the past number of months but we’re looking forward to getting back on the road on July 27 and taking positive steps forward with our Cork and Belfast routes. 

"A significant amount of people rely on our intercity services between Cork, Belfast and Dublin and this became even more apparent as restrictions eased. 

"As we get set to welcome our customers once again on July 27, the safety of our drivers and customers is at the forefront of everything we do," she said.

"While surroundings may look a little different than previously, customers will continue to travel in luxury with Aircoach," Ms McKay continued. 

In line with Government regulations, all customers will be required to wear face masks onboard each service. Antibacterial hand gel is available on all coaches.
