Milton Keynes based Omega Travel Ltd has ordered a further ten Scania Touring tri-axle coaches in what is the largest single order placed by a UK operator for the vehicle. The coaches are based on Scania’s K 410 SCR only chassis and are fitted with 57 seats, a centre toilet, a drinks machine, a DVD player, two monitors and Durabright alloy wheels. The coaches come with Scania’s two year repair and maintenance package as standard.
The order will take the number of deliveries of this marque to 55 within a year of the first Touring HD arriving in the UK. The majority of deliveries have been the 6×2*4 13.7m model, but with the first 4×2 12.1m versions entering service this season, Scania expects the growth of the product in the UK to continue.
