First PaxLift will go to Newcastle

Newcastle International airport is set to become the first airport in the world to take delivery of a PaxLift, the new generation of ambulift from Baumann.

"Our reduced mobility passengers are important to us and we want to offer them the best travelling experience possible. Paxlift allows us to provide a service that is both dignified and efficient," explained Stephen Wafer, Head of Security and Terminal Operations, Newcastle International airport.

Designed and manufactured by Baumann, the PaxLift is an innovative, purpose-built vehicle that ensures all people with reduced mobility can be transferred with dignity between the terminal and the aircraft, revolutionising the customer airport experience for them.

Celebrating 50 years of engineering, Bauman has a long and distinguished background in machine building, but it is the PaxLift that is set to transform travel for millions of passengers. Newcastle airport has a history of dealing with UK distributor Multevo, which has been instrumental in the contract. As the person responsible for bringing the Paxlift to Newcastle International airport, Wafer added: ‘Our relationship with our supply chain partner Multevo has been strong for a number of years; they introduced the Multihog product range to us and the rest of the UK market nearly ten years ago. That gave us the confidence to move forward to become the first airport in the world to order one."
