The service will operate between Manchester Shudehill Interchange and Manchester Piccadilly to Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
Prices from £8 one way for adults and £7.50 one way for children (aged between 5 and 15), with under 5s travelling free.
Speaking about the new bus links, Danny Williams, Commercial Manager for Liverpool John Lennon Airport , said, “The Airport serves the whole of the North West and we are continually looking to improve public transport links across the region. This new direct service linking LJLA with Manchester city centre couldn’t be more convenient with the coach picking up and dropping off passengers at the front of the terminal building and will be welcomed by thousands of passengers who wish to use public transport.”
Whilst Steve Elms of Northwest Coachlines, added, ”We are delighted to have been able to reinstate the express bus service to Manchester City Centre in partnership with the Airport and look forward to welcoming customers on to our fast, reliable, value for money service on this important route which provides many opportunities for onward travel to the North West region and beyond”
