Strong Start for National Express

Birmingham-headquartered coach operator National Express has hailed a "strong start" to 2016.

In an interim management statement for the period from 1 January to 30 April, the company revealed revenues have increased by 4 per cent on an underlying basis with growth across all divisions.

Group chief executive Dean Finch said: "I am pleased that we have carried our strong momentum from 2015 into the first third of this year, achieving growth in passenger numbers and an increase in revenues across all divisions.

"Our established businesses continue to grow, year-on-year, and our new businesses in Germany and Bahrain are already carrying millions of passengers, through a combination of innovation, partnership and customer service, underpinned by a relentless focus on operational excellence.

"We also believe this experience helps position us well for other emerging opportunities."

National Express also said it is "firmly committed" to meeting its full year target of £100m free cash flow.
