Mistral and ADL partnership delivers four new Enviro 200s into Manchester Airport
Mistral and Alexander Dennis Limited have worked in partnership to deliver four new Enviro 200 buses to Manchester Airport which is experiencing a surge in demand for passenger services.
Passenger numbers at Manchester Airport are heading towards record levels and as such, the airport needed an immediate boost in its capacity to manoeuvre passengers.
Much to the delight of Manchester Airport Transport Manager Andy Willis, the deal was concluded in a matter of weeks.
He commented: “Such has been the increase in passenger numbers that we needed vehicles fast.
“Thanks to the teamwork between ADL and their lease and rental partners at Mistral, we were able to conclude arrangements and have the new buses operating in a period of just five weeks.
“The vehicles were modified to include extra racking for luggage and also have increased CCTV cameras for security reasons.
“They carry 60 passengers yet retain the super manoeuvrability for which the Enviro200 is famous.
“This is a big advantage when operating in and around the confines of a busy airport.
“With around 15 ADL buses already operating in our airport fleet, we were always confident in the product but I cannot emphasis enough how delighted I have been with the rapid response from ADL and Mistral.
“They have done an outstanding job.”
All four of the new Enviro200s are 10.8m, Euro5 vehicles powered by Cummins ISBe four-cylinder, 160PS engines with Allison S2100 transmissions.
