Manchester Airport has put into operation two new, low-carbon Enviro200 single deck buses in its customer transport fleet, which provides car park shuttle buses as well as airside operations.
The new British-built, 10.8m long buses are equipped with bespoke racking for passengers’ luggage. The vehicles are fitted with the award-winning Alexander Dennis SmartPack efficiency technology that ensures they are certified as low emission buses.
These latest vehicles were bought directly from Alexander Dennis by the airport, which pre-pandemic served almost 30 million passengers annually. They join a similar pair leased through Mistral earlier in the year, while a fifth Enviro200 is also on order.
Head of customer transport at Manchester Airport, Hardik Modha, said: “Modern and easily accessible buses are an important part of our service delivery for our customers and we’re pleased to be able to put these two new Alexander Dennis buses into service for the busy summer months.”
