Toyota Hilux proves plane success for London City Airport
The pickups – two HL2 models and an Invincible – will be used for carrying out various airfield activities and have been fitted with extra lights, communication equipment and bird scaring equipment.
As well as being one of Toyota’s longest established models, the Hilux is renowned for being one of the hardest wearing and most reliable too – a key factor in the airport’s purchase decision.
Kevin Wincell, airfield operations manager at London City Airport, explained: ‘The Airfield Operations team at London City Airport is responsible for making sure that the airfield is safe and running smoothly. They need to be able to mobilise officers quickly in an emergency scenario and it is essential that we are able to have confidence in reliable and well-equipped vehicles. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Toyota.’
The Hilux models were supplied through the Business Centre at Hills Toyota Woodford, which will also be looking after their servicing requirements. The purchase was funded via Toyota Financial Services.
