Boarding ramps and bridges manufacturer Aviramp has clinched £1.2m of new orders from US-based Frontier Airlines

The orders – for nine step-free boarding ramps – mean the Denver-based carrier has invested nearly £2m with Aviramp in the last 18 months. 

Aviramp chief executive and founder Graham Corfield said the latest orders were a huge vote of confidence in the UK-based company and its innovative, award-winning ramps.

“This latest order means we have now supplied Frontier with 14 Aviramps in total, with the latest installations taking place as I speak. It’s part of a really successful start to the year for us which has seen a 30% rise in our order book.

“What’s particularly pleasing is that Frontier has been using our ramps for some time and can see the advantages that safe, step-free and solar-powered ramps bring over traditional steps.

“Passengers can board in comfort, disabled passengers enjoy far greater dignity, turnaround times at the airport are reduced and by using solar power they help cut the company’s carbon footprint as the aviation industry moves to a net zero future,” Corfield said.

Aviramp’s solar-powered ramps are the first of their kind in the world and offer a fully sustainable alternative to diesel-powered or manual ramps.
