With around 70 million passengers a year, London Heathrow Airport is the biggest airport in Europe. London Heathrow is third in the world behind Atlanta and Beijing airports when it comes to passenger traffic. Over 80 airlines take off and land at London Heathrow and fly to 184 destinations in 80 countries from five different terminals. The most popular global travel destinations from the international hub are New York, Dubai, Dublin, Frankfurt and Amsterdam.
From 2014, Wanzl is supplying a total of 12,000 luggage trolleys in a sturdy steel version of the Combi C 400 model, individually modified to the exact customer requirements, to conveniently transport luggage in Heathrow Terminals 1 to 4. The Wanzl models are gradually replacing the existing trolley fleet. The order is accompanied by a five-year maintenance contract, undertaken by Wanzl UK. The trolleys will be checked at clearly defined intervals to ensure they are in pristine condition and if necessary, retrofitted with Wanzl original spare parts. The order is a result of an international call for tenders, in which Wanzl pitted itself against global competition and successfully won the bid.
