(PresseBox) ( Pilsting/Munich, )
They are at home at the airports of the world – at 155 airports in175 countries worldwide - and they have been for 54 years up to now - Airport Apron Buses from NEOPLAN. The first NEOPLAN Airport Apron Bus has been built as early as 1953 – that means more than 50 years of experience in apron bus building. Between 60 and 80 buses are sold each and every year, right now there are more than 1.200 buses in operation at the airports of the world. At the inter airport europe 2007 in Munich, NEOPLAN shows the new generation airport apron bus N 9122 L with Euro 4 MAN PURE DIESEL technology.

In 2007 a large order has been placed for NEOPLAN from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including the shortened VIP Version N 9112 K with an exclusive interiour fitting. With more than 400 buses in the Middle East, of which alone 120 run at Dubai International Airport, this booming region is one of the most interesting for the traditional VIP-class brand. The Dubai buses did play a big role in creating the positive brand image for NEOPLAN, so that in 2007 a major order for more than 400 NEOPLAN citybuses for Dubai could also be placed.

The importance and meaning of this vehicle for the brand NEOPLAN shall not be underestimated, particularly when remembering that many young people today get in close touch with these buses at the airport apron. Thus it is especially important to convince them of the advantages of this modern means of transport regarding an up-to-date exterior and design. NEOPLAN has been leader in bus and coach design for decades and shows this also with his new apron bus model, that has been launched in the year 2005 for the first time.

The new and dynamic generation of these vehicles from NEOPLAN with an exciting design is by now well established but nevertheless new and thrilling. The design of the airport apron buses is a logical evolution of the stylistic elements present in the predecessor generation: e.g. the forward-leaning B-posts with the rear-end leaning in the opposite direction and reminiscent of the elevator of an aircraft; the low-reaching wheel housing that make the vehicles seem to hover. The large amount of glass in the side-walls, the front and the rear extends up to the roof and turns the NEOPLAN airport apron bus into a real phenomenon on the apron. The front, in particular the head-lights, is adapted to the current design of the NEOPLAN coaches and radiates resoluteness and innovative power.

The bus is driven by a front-mounted MAN six-cylinder common-rail diesel engine, rated at 240hp (177kW) with MAN PM-Kat according to the maintenance free and easy to handle MAN PURE DIESEL technology. The Power is transmitted with an automatic gearbox with integrated retarder from Voith. As in modern city buses, the cockpit is designed in line with the guidelines of the VDV (German Association of Transport Operators). This means that the driver will find a workplace featuring the latest ergonomics. A special feature of the buses is that the independent wheel suspension is installed at the rear because of the low-floor area there (instead of the front like in a coach). The buses are built at the exclusive NEOPLAN partner TVM (Tovarna Vozil Maribor) in Maribor, Slovenia, according to NEOPLAN VIP-Class production and quality standards. There is a range of five different models altoghether.
