East Midlands Airport connects over 4.3 million passengers with Europe and the world, supporting over 6,000 jobs which generate £300 million for the region’s economy.
With so much at stake for regional airports, like in the East Midlands, it is essential that these hubs of enterprise thrive to provide the stalwart service needed to compete in this competitive industry.
The recent delivery of a Multihog MH90 equipped to tackle severe snowfall at the airport with its bespoke front mounted snow blower and brush attachments will help to keep disruption to a minimum airside as well as landside.
As part of the Manchester Airports Group (M.A.G.), the largest British owned airport operator, East Midlands joins Gatwick and Heathrow in recognizing the distinct advantages of the Multihog innovation. Multihog is already a well-established name and all-seasonal-solution to airport maintenance.
The powerful yet compact Multihog with snow brush and blower attachments ensure excellent manoeuvrability around parked aircraft and hard to reach areas, making this the ideal solution for head of stand and forecourt snow clearance. The snow brush application creates a clean sweep leaving a safe and sound back-to-black finish.
Stephen Cavinder, an Independent Consultant to the Airport and Road Transport Industry, having previously endorsed the Multihog whilst at Heathrow confirmed: “Easy to operate, excellent manoeuvrability, good all round vision, compact design and a clean diesel engine, all make for an excellent choice for any international or local airport."
Glen Wilson, Operations department at East Midlands Airport said: “During the past week, the region has expected significant snow fall and throughout this period of bad weather, we can’t sing the praises of the Multihog enough. It has offered great flexibility and reliability for us, during severe winter weather.”
