Coach company National Express has announced they will provide free coach travel to and from UK airports for passengers on repatriation flights from Greece. Thousands of people have returned home from Greece as a result of the wildfires spreading around the islands.   

Manchester Airport is one of several UK airports to which repatriation flights have landed from Greece. National Express will transport people and their luggage to their original airport free of charge.  

Anyone who has been repatriated and requires a free coach ticket should show proof of their original flight and airport and the boarding pass of the flight they have taken. 

National Express also honours coach travel already booked for any date subject to availability

Four airlines operate flights to and from Greek locations from Manchester Airport. These are, TUI, Ryanair and easyJet- most of these airlines have provided statements on their services to the affected areas of Greece. 

 Managing Director of National Express Coach, Chris Hardy, said: “We’ve all seen the horrifying experiences people have had in the Greek wildfires on the news. This is the least we can do to help them get back home.”

Chris added: “National Express is proud to step up in these national moments to help people get home.”
