London City Airport gets 3 Toyota Hilux as airside support vehicles

Article by Anita Panait, on May 18, 2013

Three new Toyota Hilux Double Cabs were delivered to London City Airport to serve as its airside support vehicles. The three vehicles replaced three aged Hilux that had been providing great service for years as airside support vehicles. London City Airport will use the new Toyota Hilux Double Cabs -- two HL2 models and an Invincible -- to carry out various airfield activities required in its daily airside operations.

The pickups were equipped with extra lights, communication equipment and bird scaring equipment to support some the airport’s special requirements. Kevin Wincell, Airfield Operations Manager at London City Airport, remarked that their team is responsible for ensuring the safety and smooth running of the airfield.

He said the team needs to be able to mobilize officers quickly in an emergency scenario, adding that it is essential that they have confidence in reliable and well-equipped vehicles, like the Hilux.

The pickups were delivered to London City Airport through the Business Centre at Hills Toyota Woodford, which will also take care of their servicing needs. The acquisition was funded through Toyota Financial Services.

The Hilux is one of Toyota’s longest established models and is reputed worldwide for one of most reliable and hardest wearing vehicles. The Toyota Hilux could be acquired in three body styles -- Single, Extra and Double Cab, – available in either a 2.5 or 3.0 liter D-4D diesel engine, in manual or automatic transmission.
