Manchester Airport Shuttles - Solo40336 - 10/12/2016 20:34

Hi all,
Does anybody know of any lists of the routes operated by Manchester Airport to surrounding Car parks, hotels etc and a current fleet list?
Quite an interesting operation but hard to keep track of.
Thanks.

A number of the withdrawn citaro artics have been removed other the last couple of weeks and towed to wrigleys in Barnsley. I spotted FBJ travelling through Hollingworth on Wednesday morning last week Presumsbly for scrap. Spotted about 3 or 4 others over the last couple of weeks but oddly I've noticed they seem to be covering the number plates with gaffer tape so there unreadable.

That would suggest there will be another influx of stock for the summer 2017 season then, especially as the staff car parks are moved further from the terminals!

Some looked quite tatty like they had been withdrawn for a while.

The 64 and 15 plate Versa's are not Hybrids, they're Euro 6 Diesel.

A couple of visits to the airport this week, I've noted darts SN53 ETT/EUE in the fleet in Yellow and Blue while the DVLA tax checker or Flickr doesn't have any trace of SN55 HSK/HSZ since March/June respectively.

On the Citaros front I've only managed to see LK53 FBN and BX07 NMF in the couple of visits I've paid, LK53 FBJ/FBN/FBX and BX07 Are the only ones showing as taxed while FBG/FCM/FCN are showing as untaxed.

As for the Vera's being Diesel or Hybrid it appears that the 12 plates are Hybrids while the 54 and 15 plates are Euro 6 Diesel's

I also have silver Enviro200s KX59 CZK/L down as being with Manchester Airport for airside transfers or have these now left the fleet?

I've seen CZK a few times over the last few months, not send CZL though
