We have secured a new contract with OUIBUS to provide coach services from London to Paris across Fridays to Mondays.
OUIBUS is an international coach service that connects the major cities across Europe. A subsidiary of the French railway, SNCF, OUIBUS’s first hub was founded at Paris-Bercy. Their routes include the popular lines London-Paris, London-Lille and London-Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport. The London to Paris daily route operates 11 times a day, 4 day-time journeys and 7 night-time journeys.
Previously, our parent company National Express UK held the contract for OUIBUS. The service was operated by The Kings Ferry but since National Express UK ceased all European operations, this led to the contract being ceased too.
Chris Burley, Group Operations Director for The Kings Ferry Group, has been working hard to contact OUIBUS direct and has successfully secured 2 weekend night services (culminating in 8 vehicle movements) across Fridays to Mondays, for The Kings Ferry’s London to Paris route.
From July 2019 through to September 2019, these will move from weekend to daily services.
This is a new venture for The Kings Ferry, as National Express controlled the operation beforehand. The Kings Ferry’s Operations team are now working directly with OUIBUS Base Care and we are hoping this will be the start of a successful and prosperous partnership where we will continue to supply a professional service with the aim of securing more routes in the future.
With tickets from £16.99 per person each way from London to Paris, travelling by coach is a cheaper alternative to flying.
Travelling with The Kings Ferry makes for a luxurious and comfortable journey. The vehicles used for the contract are our Mercedes-Benz Executive coaches wrapped in OUIBUS livery. Each of our coaches feature reclining seats, hot drinks facilities, reading lights, air conditioning, curtains, DVD player and screen, as well as a WC facility.
