Berlin/Munich, 02/06/2015 – In January, FlixBus merged with MeinFernbus to Germany's market leader. Now, all signs are pointing to expansion: In the following weeks, the first FlixBuses are going to connect Denmark and Sweden to Central Europe by new cross-border lines from Copenhagen and Malmö. Besides, the domestic FlixBus networks in Germany, France and Italy will be extended to further destinations.
André Schwämmlein, Founder and Managing Director of FlixBus: „There are only green lights ahead: After the merger, we extend our international route network with united forces. Our new lines connect more and more destinations in Scandinavia, Benelux and many more countries with Germany.“ In total, the green buses are already on the road in 15 European countries. Further routes are in the pipeline or in the process of authorisation.

Green Eiffel Tower: Connections from and to France
