EXTRA buses are being put on for this weekend’s Sunderland International Airshow.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to descend on the city from Friday to Sunday for the annual aeronautical extravaganza.

As well as their usual bus routes into Sunderland, operator Go North East will be running special Airshow bus routes from Sunderland city centre, Washington, Concord, Durham, Houghton and East Herrington.

From Sunderland Interchange and Fawcett Street, visitors to the Airshow can catch the A1 which will run throughout Friday evening and all day on Saturday and Sunday.

From Washington, Concord, Sulgrave and Southwick, visitors can catch the A2 route which runs every 20 minutes during the day on Saturday and Sunday.

And from Durham, Belmont, Houghton and East Herrington, visitors can get on the A3 service which runs hourly during the day on Saturday and Sunday.

Extra buses will also run on route 99 between Hylton Castle, Town End Farm, Downhill and Witherwack to Seaburn on Saturday and Sunday.

Stephen King, marketing and sales manager at Go North East, said: “We’re delighted to be running extra buses to the 2014 Sunderland International Airshow as it’s a great day out for all the Family and we can take the stress of driving and parking away with our extra buses which take you to the heart of the action at Seaburn.

“We’ve got a great value Family Day Ticket at only £12 which gives you unlimited bus travel on all our buses for a day for two adults and three children travelling together.

“You can even buy your Family Day Ticket on our smartphone app to save you carrying change and you can still buy your ticket from the driver on the day too.

“Customers in Sunderland can save too with our Sunderland Daysaver which gives you unlimited travel in Sunderland for only £3.50 per day.”
