Bakers Coaches of Biddulph has secured a prestigious contract working with Hino Travel – a UKbased agency co-ordinating travel plans for Chinese tourists, covering a range of holiday destinations, throughout Britain and Europe.

In-line with the nature and requirements of the operation, Bakers decided to acquire King Long coaches carrying Hino Travel livery.

Managing Director Phil Baker said: “This is an important development for Bakers Coaches and a notable win, following our work in 2012 in connection with the Royal Jubilee celebrations and the London games. We are operating in a global community and it is a great privilege to be selected to provide the transport arrangements for Chinese tourists, who are now visiting the UK in growing numbers.”

The company has taken delivery of three King Long XMQ6127 midicoaches with seating capacities of 29, 31 and 35 passengers. A further three 49 seat King Long Executive Coaches are also being delivered for use on the Hino contract, as well as other business opportunities. All the vehicles are equipped with air conditioning, video players and reclining leather seats.

Justin He, Managing Director of Hino Travel said: “We are very happy to be working with Bakers Coaches. We value the quality and professionalism of the company and the willingness to supply King Long coaches.”
