FlixBus growing fast, spreading in Denmark
Together with Danish SME bus companies, the newly established entity “FlixBus Danmark ApS” is going to launch a domestic network as well as new cross-border services to Scandinavia and the Continent.
From spring 2017, new FlixBuses are going to connect Denmark’s large and medium-sized cities up to six times per day.
Being leading provider of domestic coach services in Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands, FlixBus will now expand its green business model for the first time to Scandinavia.
Max Zeumer, FlixBus Vice President International Business: “We want to offer green and smart mobility all over Denmark. From spring 2017, the first Danish FlixBuses are going to run on high-frequent connections between all major cities. Together with regional bus partners, we are going to establish Denmark’s best long-distance coach network.”
In June 2015, FlixBus started a sales cooperation for cross-border services between the Danish capital and Berlin.
In April 2016 the green provider launched its first own line connecting Copenhagen, Kolding and Odense to Dutch cities.
Within one year, FlixBus has tripled the volume of passengers on these international connections. This summer alone, over 70.000 customers have used the FlixBus cross-border service from or to Denmark.
FlixBus was launched in 2013 in Germany after the opening-up of the national market. Based on an innovative business model, new tech innovations and the cooperation with regional bus companies, the start-up was able to run a national network within months.
FlixBus now offers Europe’s most extensive coach network with 100.000 daily connections to 20 countries and created around 5.000 new jobs in the local SME industry of its key markets. ■
