With 80 airlines flying to 185 destinations in 84 countries, Heathrow is currently the busiest Europe and sixth busiest airport in the world. After Brexit, it's expected that the decision to expand the airport will finally be approved. 7 Plus Travel say that investing in new vehicles is part of their strategy in preparing for the Heathrow expansion as well as adding to their current high-end fleet.
Passenger numbers are already very high at over 75 million per year. The expansion will no doubt affect many associated services in the travel sector. One such market space is group travel by minibus and coaches.
In a bid to improve their level of service to clients who require a minibus to Heathrow Airport, 7 Plus Travel are taking no prisoners. They already have an impressive fleet of minibuses including luxury Mercedes models with leather trim, Air Con, DVD and privacy panoramic glass. Now they've ordered a new custom fitted 22 seat minibus which is currently being built over seas.
When asked what was so special about the new minibus, the company's transport manager said: "The new 22 seater minibus is unique in that it is fitted with a moveable internal wall behind the back seats. This allows it to be used as a full capacity 22 seater, with room for hand luggage or as a 19 seater taking a full luggage load. Once the 3 back seats are removed the internal wall can be repositioned. This means that unlike other buses the luggage is kept completely separate from the passengers. It's a more comfortable and safer design."
Two of the companies representatives recently flew out to visit the factory so they could review progress and finalise the deal for the new minibus. You can see a short video showing the conversion process either in this article or by visiting the company web page and clicking the link to the New bus blog page.
There are around six million passengers travelling through Heathrow every month and they need to know there are reliable onward travel facilities that can cater to their particular needs. 7 Plus provide minibuses from small 8 seaters to luxury 32 seaters for both budget and luxury travellers. With the new addition, they have a flexible custom build vehicle with the latest technical advances and equipment.
The company have also completely redesigned their website and improved their booking facility. They are now in the early development stage of a Heathrow specific group travel site that will cater exclusively to the needs of Heathrow travelers. A blog post and video diary showing a visit to the factory where the bus is being built can be found on the site 7plustravel.co.uk as well as further information about their Heathrow Airport transfers service.
The companies web developers said "We don't actually know when the new Heathrow specific site will launch but it's currently under development. As well as helping the company improve it's visibility online we believe website visitors would appreciate a Heathrow only site which provides relevant information that's easy to find."
As for the new minibus this is expected to enter service in mid-October and will come fully loaded with, air con, reclining leather seats, top of the range vide and audio entertainment system, fully carpeted and all round privacy glass. The company believe their new minibus will be the ultimate in luxury group travel.
