i6 Integral is a favourite for Aintree
Merseyside operator Aintree Coaches has taken delivery of its first Irizar Integral coach… and says it won’t be its last.
The Hooton-based company selected a 12.9-metre Irizar i6 Integral – a favourite with UK operators – as a perfect match for its high-quality work with an elite private school and a rugby team. The vehicle has DAF’s award-winning MX11 engine coupled with a ZF EcoLife automatic gearbox.
‘I can honestly say every promise that was made was met by Irizar UK’
“The whole experience has been positive, from meeting the Irizar UK sales team onwards. We were made to feel very welcome, and I can honestly say every promise that was made was met by Irizar UK,” said Managing Director John Cherry, shown collecting the keys from Irizar UK Director Ian Hall.
The stunning coach was liveried at the Irizar factory in Northern Spain, which John and another team member visited during the specification process. It has joined the Aintree fleet and lead driver Jayne Wright who, John says, has heaped praise upon her new ‘wheels.’
Largely specialising in bus work, Aintree has four coaches in its fleet of 35 vehicles.
