We are delighted to announce an investment of £384,000 in two new top-of-the range, low-emission midi coaches.
We’ve added two Yutong TC9 Midi Coaches to our fleet at a cost of £192,000 each, as part of an overall £2.3m upgrade to our vehicles to comply with the latest Euro 6 emission standards.
The new coaches have more storage space and additional seats compared to the two vehicles they are replacing.
The coaches are an international collaboration, as they are manufactured in China with a British Cummins engine and a German ZF auto gearbox.
LandFlight director Danny Matthews said: “We are always looking at ways we can improve services for our customers.
“The new midi coaches have all the comforts, including USB ports at each seat, on-board Wi-Fi, air conditioning and leather seats and I am sure our passengers will notice the difference immediately.
“And they also comply with the latest Euro 6 emission standards, so we will not have to pay the £100 charge many larger vehicles have to pay now the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) has been introduced in London, or the £50 Clean Air Zone charge which is being introduced soon in Birmingham.
“As a business, we not only think about the comfort of our passengers, we are also concerned about the environment.”
