To keep aircraft turnarounds as quick as possible for optimum operational efficiency, time on the cpbus — for example taxiing to and from a terminal building — must be kept to a minimum. This has resulted in airlines parking planes closer to the runway and choosing to transport passengers by bus instead.

Nowadays, between 40 and 50 percent of passengers are taken to the plane by bus which has resulted in the constant growth of airport bus fleets over recent years. Comfort for passengers and drivers The three metre-wide COBUS is specially developed for the transportation of as many passengers as possible between the airport terminal buildings and planes.


The torque converter and the helical cut planetary gear sets deliver engine power to the wheels quietly and without jolting. The bus is easy to manoeuvre around aircraft and other support vehicles and drivers can concentrate on driving with both hands on the steering wheel.

Perfect temperature thanks to a perfect conditioning Particularly in hot climates such as in Spain, Portugal, Saudi Arabia and Singapore, the bus ride must not only to be smooth; it must provide a comfortable temperature.

The power take off direct from the converter housing ensures the best performance of the air conditioner and the perfect comfort inside the bus. The torque converter with integrated torsional damper reduces shocks on the vehicle driveline enabling operation at lowest engine speed.
