A British transport company has announced plans for a new service for Dublin Airport.
National Express already has operations in Germany, Spain, Switzerland, the UK, North Africa, North America and the Middle East.
Phase one of the 'Dublin Express' service is set to launch next month and will see the creation of 70 new jobs.
National Express has been awarded a contract to run the high-frequency, cross-city network.
The service will be operated on their behalf by Bernard Kavanagh Coaches.
The first services will start in March with three routes running up to 24 hours a day between Dublin Airport and the city centre.
While a phased expansion will see additional services being added to connect more locations across the city - and increase the frequency of airport connections.
John Boughton, managing director of National Express Ireland, said: "We currently run 1,100 airport services every day on a 24 hour basis direct to the terminal for all major UK airports including Gatwick, Luton, Stansted, Heathrow and Manchester.
"And as Ireland's largest private coach operator, we have previously worked with Bernard Kavanagh Coaches to operate Irish services.
"Dublin Express will bring together this collective experience, local knowledge and expertise to provide a much enhanced experience at a great price."
Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison added: "We are very focused on improving public transport options to Dublin Airport for both passengers and airport-based employees, and we specifically sought coach and bus providers who would expand the network, both in terms of the hours of operation and the route choice."
The company says passengers will benefit from a fleet of modern coaches with an array of safety and technology features.
This includes extra legroom, free WiFi and charging sockets.
It will also provide customers with real time information to track their coach, and easy booking and payment - such as contactless ticketing at the airport.
This service joins several other airport routes - including the Aircoach and recently extended 24-hour 41 Dublin Bus service.
