Nissan Navaras join Airport fleet

Navaras have joined Highlands and Islands Airport Ltd's fleet of 100 Nissan vehicles.

The versatile and practical Navara pick-up trucks will be used to provide specialist services at airports across the Scottish Highlands, Northern Isles and Western Isles.

The Navaras will be used to assist with a variety of essential everyday tasks – one has been transformed into a specialist fire command vehicle at Inverness Airport while two have been fitted with specialist bird scaring equipment!

Paul Rodden, Chief Engineer and Fleet Manager at Highlands and Islands Airports, said: “We went through a procurement procedure three years ago and Nissan came out on top. They were the only manufacturer that could supply vehicles that met our brief.

“Since then we've not been disappointed – the vehicles we've had have been up to any job... This time around we needed vehicles that could cope with very demanding roles – there's such an issue with seabird colonies at Stornoway, for example, that the bird control vehicles can cover 2,000 miles a month without ever leaving the airport.

“The Navara was our first choice."

The Nissan Navara pick-up truck is designed to cope with all terrains and environments, while still offering a comfortable drive. It has a payload of up to 1,250kg and a towing capacity of up to 3,000kg, making it ideal for any tough job.
