According to Flix, it is active in 42 countries. Now the long-distance bus provider wants to expand further. Next stop: India.
The long-distance bus provider Flix wants to expand further internationally and is planning a bus travel offer in India for the coming year. “India is one of the most promising markets in the world,” said group co-founder André Schwämmlein on Wednesday. “We will invest heavily there and, like in all Flix countries, we want to become the market leader.”
As in all other countries, Flix does not want to operate its own bus fleet, but rather cooperate with regional bus companies. In this model, Flix acts primarily as an intermediary for the journeys and takes care of customer service, network planning and marketing, among other things.
In India, the company initially wants to start connecting metropolitan regions. Specific routes and timetables were not announced.
According to Flix, it is active in 42 countries. In Germany, the provider dominates the long-distance bus market and is also active in long-distance rail transport. The internationally renowned Greyhound long-distance buses in the USA have also belonged to the company for several years.
