OBC Airline service offers Ukrainian refugees free travel

New OBC Airline coach

Oxford Bus Company is assisting Ukrainian refugees arriving in the UK with free travel on its Airline service.

The coach provides connections between Heathrow and Gatwick airports to Oxford and High Wycombe.

Ukrainian nationals, many of whom are fleeing after Ukraine was invaded by Russia on 24 February, are able to use the service on presentation of a valid Ukrainian passport.

“In line with many major travel operators across Europe we are offering all Ukrainian nationals free travel on our airline service to help them reach safety at the difficult time,” says Phil Southall, Oxford Bus Company Managing Director. “If any Ukrainian national needs to use our airline service all they need to do is simply show their passport to the driver to board”

At time of writing it is understood some 2m people have fled Ukraine.
