Flix, the global provider of travel options operating in 39 countries, reported a record-breaking summer season result (Q2/Q3 2022). Thanks to the strong returning demand for travelling after the pandemic and the rising importance of shared and climate-friendly mobility, Flix has grown the number of carried passengers by 130% across the globe for the period April – September 2022, compared to the same period last year.
The recovery of the Flix business is driven by its global expansion and passenger numbers are even above pre-pandemic levels in 2019 for the Flix group.
Flix has allowed over 34 million travelers to reach globally more than 3,000 destinations in Europe, North America, Turkey, and Brazil, and has delivered a profitable summer season result on a group level.
“I am very proud that Flix is back stronger than ever after the pandemic, demonstrating that our constant efforts towards sustainable recovery have paid off,” said André Schwämmlein, CEO at Flix. “We keep fostering our strategy to drive the future of mobility in a profitable and sustainable way. Investing into our expansion to Brazil, the U.S., Canada, Portugal, and the Baltics during the pandemic, proved to be another bold and successful step toward our vision of offering affordable and sustainable mobility for everyone around the globe.”
In the summer season 2022 Flix has connected over 3,000 destinations globally providing one of the largest networks of sustainable and affordable mobility.

Flix SE launched Flix North America Inc. in July 2022 to steer the two operating entities FlixBus Inc. and Greyhound toward providing the best customer experience across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. During the high season 2022, FlixBus and Greyhound connected approximately 1,400 destinations, building the backbone of land-based, environmental-friendly travel options in North America.
Flix North America reported a 30% growth in carried passengers for the high season 2022 vs same period last year, with more than 1.4 million passengers opting for FlixBus during the summer months to showcase that travel is truly back after years of pandemic interruptions.
“Facing increasing inflation and fuel prices, Flix is aware of the rising importance of affordable and sustainable mobility. We will continue investing our efforts into growing the Flix network and developing new sustainable alternative drives towards a greener future,” added Schwämmlein.
