Although the growing international coach brand recently reached an agreement with Volvo, Belgian bus operator Staf Cars has expanded its bus fleet by adding five new Setra S531DT double-deckers for Flixbus work. The company said it chose Setra for its flagship vehicles as the marque provides the highest quality and excellent service. “We want more and more people to decide to take the bus”, explained CEO Pieter Thijs: “That’s why we work with partners who have a strong image and are looking to the future. Setra is a perfect match.”

Founded in 1952, the Limburg-based company operates 120 vehicles and employs around 180 people. Its vehicles cover almost 11.5 million kilometres every year, on both short-distance and long-distance lines.
