Walsall-based coach operator JKT International has added a sixth Scania Irizar coach to its 12-strong fleet.

Entering service on 1 September, the company’s latest vehicle is a Scania Irizar i6S with HD bodywork. Based on a Scania K 360 EB4x2 chassis, the coach is built to full PSVAR specification, including a wheelchair lift and destination equipment. The vehicle’s overall length is 12.9m, a new variant launched in December 2019.

Interior options include 53 half-leather seats with three-point seatbelts, a central sunken toilet, hot drinks dispenser, DVD player and two monitors, climate control and a reversing camera. Alcoa Dura-Bright alloy wheels are fitted.

JKT International Director, Jawed Akhtar, commented: “Although these times are extremely tough, we made the decision to continue our investment programme in new PSVAR (Public Service Vehicle Accessibility Regulations) compliant vehicles.

“We have a long-standing partnership with Scania and have always received excellent service from both its pre- and after-sales departments.”

Supplied with an inclusive two-year repair and maintenance contract, service will be provided by JKT International’s local Scania dealer, Keltruck Willenhall.

Established over 50 years ago, JKT International specialises in providing a comprehensive range of UK and European group travel services for schools, clubs and societies.
