Luggage transport trolleys from Wanzl have been deployed at over 350 airports worldwide. In May, the Travel 400 model was also rolled out at Terminal 1 of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. Wanzl supplied 2,500 trolleys to Taipeh from Germany. The order from Taiwan's largest airport, which is the most important hub for China Airlines, included a further 600 Easy 88 duty-free trolleys which were manufactured at Wanzl's production site in Shanghai. Just as the first trolleys were delivered, Wanzl was awarded the contract for terminal 2 and received a second order from Taiwan. Another 2,600 Travel 400 luggage transport trolleys with folding brackets for additional luggage restraint and 630 Easy 88 trolleys were delivered to Taoyuan Airport in August/September.
Benefits of the Travel 400 and Easy 88
Its key features are its robust, durable design, sturdy luggage support, excellent stability when transporting heavy loads, spacious luggage area, easy handling and good manoeuvrability when nested. These benefits make the Travel 400 an ideal solution for any type of luggage.
Wanzl's Easy 88 model is custom-made for the Asian market; its generous advertising space and basket make this model very popular amongst duty-free shop owners and advertising agents.
Wanzl trolleys for 14 airports in South Korea
The successful Travel 400 model has also won over Korea Airports Corporation (KAC); for more than two years, 6,000 of the elegant stainless steel luggage trolleys have been in use at Incheon International Airport in the South Korean capital Seoul. Wanzl has recently received an order from KAC to supply a further 14 airports in South Korea with a total of 7,275 stainless steel Travel 400 trolleys. This follow-up order takes Wanzl's market share for luggage trolleys at South Korea's airports to 100%. Wanzl expects to deliver the trolleys to the customer in August 2015 for use at Jeju, Gimpo, Kimhea, Cheongju, Daegu, Yangyang, Gwangju, Muan, Ulsan, Pohang, Yeosu, Gunsan, Sacheon and Wonju airports. An additional order of 2,000 trolleys has been placed for Jeju airport, serving the holiday island known as the Mallorca of South Korea, making the airport a key transport hub for tourists.
