Aviramp launches its solar powered range

Aviramp launches its solar powered range of patented boarding ramps and bridges. This new suite delivers all the benefits of their existing products, with the added advantage of delivering zero emissions! Providing an environmental mandate within ground support equipment. Moreover their ramps move all passengers in one go together, which means there is no need for any other GSE equipment, making it an all-inclusive and multi-functional product.

The appetite for buying ‘electric’ is evident within the industry as the swathe of incoming orders for Airamp include Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport (LYS) in France with their 11 solar continentals and a solar regional to drive operational efficiencies there. Danish Airport Aarhaus Lufthavn (AAR) have just placed an order for a solar continental, and more are pending globally. The solar continental is clearly a firm favourite and one of their most popular models given its versatility. Aviramp have now been offering solar in the Lite model for quite some time. You can see these ‘live and operational’ in Birmingham(BHX), Southampton(SOU) and Highlands and Islands(HIAL), as well as in Europe, most notably in Corsica at Figari-Sud Corse (FSC) and Ajaccio (AJA) Airports.

Maurice Boyle from Logan Air says “Logan Air is proud to partner with HIAL and Aviramp to bring this revolutionary yet simple device into service, to ease and speed the boarding process for the PRM(People with Reduced Mobility) and able bodied customers alike, across our highland and island network where many of our customers fly Logan Air to attend NHS appointments at mainland hospitals. A simple proposition, brilliantly executed”.
