Following a recent online poll and a trial at Alicante airport, we are introducing a new text messaging service for passengers arriving at Almeria airport and the new Murcia International Airport at Corvera. This will be in addition to the text message sent the day before travel which we have operated for the last 3 years.
All passengers arriving on or after the 25th March 2019 are requested to turn on their phone to receive a text message containing the following information once the plane has landed:
- Location and size of vehicle;
- Expected arrival time of the latest flight on your bus (in the event there is more than one flight) and expected departure time of the bus.
We believe that this procedure will improve service and customer experience for several reasons, and 98% of our Facebook followers agreed. These reasons are as follows:
- Departure times will be earlier - all passengers will meet at the vehicle which will be ready to leave as soon as the final passenger arrives (rather than all passengers gathering in arrivals before heading to the bus);
- Drivers will be able to load luggage in order of drop off point to speed up journey times;
- Passengers arriving early will have the knowledge of their expected waiting time, allowing them to buy refreshments etc. if time permits;
- Early passengers will have first choice of seats and will be able to put their luggage on the bus straightaway.
Any passenger travelling without a mobile phone will have to follow the instructions on their ticket for each airport.
Following a successful start to our Murcia service at Corvera, we are pleased to launch a full Summer schedule meeting every direct flight from the UK & Ireland until at least the 30th of September.
