Up & Away Aviation Detailing has added 15 Volkswagen ABT e-Transporter vans to its fleet.

The firm, which provides cleaning services for private aircraft, has taken delivery the vans with a bespoke livery, and converted with a tailored racking solution for secure equipment storage.

The vans are said to have been chosen because of the premium brand alignment between Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Up & Away, as well as the aviation firm listing efficiency and sustainability as key business priorities.

The ABT e-Transporter can cover an all-electric range of up to 82 miles, and has 6.7m3 of cargo space. 

Up & Away managing director Stefan Murphy 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.”

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