Aviramp scales up for swathe of global orders

Aviramp is now scaling up operations to prepare for the next swathe of orders, seeing multiple units delivered into more airports in the USA, New Zealand and South Africa.

The latest order from Roland Garros Airport on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean is particularly special because it was where they sold their very first Aviramp product over 10 years ago.

The order is for another six units, all scheduled for manufacture and delivery this year. These include three solar powered internationals, one of which will be used as a static fixed terminal bridge, and the other will serve remote stands, along with two solar continentals and a manual lite.

Terri Smart, Global Sales & Marketing Director, said: "This ‘La Reunion’ order is a true testament to the product, and its many benefits. An existing diesel Aviramp is still performing its duty for the airport ten years later, again substantiating our claims that our boarding ramps and bridges are low-maintenance and still in fantastic shape. The latest order is for ‘Solar-Powered Aviramps’, which will streamline operations further, while being environmentally friendly and sustainable."

Aviramp's range of motorised mobile passenger boarding ramps and bridges still delivers the same core benefits in diesel or solar, improving safety by eliminating falls from steps. They drive faster turnarounds, with a proven 30% faster deplaning process, as highlighted by independent trials at London Gatwick.

"This is why so many airlines have always remained a huge champion of our products, and a massive influencer with airport operators and ground support staff. What is more, our product range delivers significant cost savings, by reducing the need for ambulift and investing in expensive maintenance programmes, not to mention it being a one-person operation. Aviramp also offers a seamless, all-inclusive passenger experience for everyone, including greater dignity for the PRM. Therefore, it really does give a massive return on so many different levels.

"This latest project means that we are now completely operational in both airports on Reunion Island."
