How about this for an impressive line-up?
On the apron, we have three new vehicles to add to the fleet. Two Shoguns and one Kia Sportage caught the eye of the discerning passers-by in the, well, unseasonal winter sunlight.
Absent was the camera-shy Toyota Hilux which was away for ‘beauty treatment’ – the application of go-faster stripe and other essential cosmetics – before it joins one of the new Shoguns at the Fire Station.
The Police and Operations benefit from the investment which is put at £120,000.
Belfast International Operations Director, Alan Whiteside, said: “We’re delighted with the new vehicles. All four were supplied locally which underlines our commitment to source as much of what we buy and use in Northern Ireland.
“We operate a sizeable number of vehicles simply because of the size of the site and the different tasks we perform, whether that’s carrying out routine runway inspections or perimeter patrolling.
“The four new vehicles have been put through their paces and come through with flying colours. Already, there’s a respectable queue of people waiting to take their turn behind the wheel to see if they match up to the expectations. They won’t be disappointed!”
The vehicles were supplied Fleet Financials. Peter Stanley of Fleet Financials said: “Belfast International has very specific requirements when it comes to the vehicles their people need. We are delighted to partner with the airport, as we have with other commercial and personal customers in NI and, indeed, UK wide.”
