Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in the UK has landed a new fleet deal with aviation detailing business, Up & Away, to deliver 15 ABT e-Transporter electric vehicles (EVs). The all-electric fleet of vans will be used by the team to transport equipment to and from airports across the UK.

Up & Away aviation detailing serves the UK’s private aircraft industry by offering a full range of interior and exterior valeting, and detailing services. The company has grown considerably since it was founded in 2006 and now operates a full team of operatives and staff at airports across the UK and Europe.

The new fleet of all-electric ABT e-Transporters features a bespoke livery and is converted with a tailored racking solution to store equipment securely in the vans.

The all-electric vans were chosen because of the premium brand alignment between Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Up & Away.

Additionally, Up & Away counts efficiency and sustainability as key business priorities, with the ABT e-Transporters helping it reach its carbon neutral targets.

Stefan Murphy, Up & Away aviation detailing managing director, said: “We needed a fleet of vans that represented us as a business. Vans that looked and felt premium, offered utmost reliability and provided us with a sustainable solution to help us reach our goal to become carbon neutral. The ABT e-Transporter fits that brief expertly and we are delighted with our new fleet of vans.”

Rob Holdcroft, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles head of fleet, said: “We strive to work with our customers through every stage of the purchasing and aftersales experience.

“We are delighted to have been able to offer tailored, liveried premium vans to Up & Away aviation detailing as well as helping the business on its way to reach carbon neutral status. We look forward to continuing to work together in the future.”
