PaxLift, the specialist airport ground support vehicle for passengers with restricted mobility developed by Baumann, has been chosen as the winner of the 2017 interRAMP Innovation Award at inter airport Europe.
The next generation ‘Ambulift’ was chosen from a shortlist of 24 nominations for the interRAMP Innovation Award, presented at the start of the three day exhibition. PaxLift MD, Klaus Pirpamer, said the award was a credit to all those that had worked hard on the project over the past two years.
Said Klaus: “For us it is very special. It’s very important that we have won because we are an outsider coming into the industry and that’s why we are especially happy to have won the prize. Many visitors are left open mouthed when they see what PaxLift is capable of! We are of course delighted to be awarded this honour. The team has worked incredibly hard to get us here and it is testament to the vision and hard work of those involved that we receive the award.”
Raising passengers smoothly and without a pantograph, stabilizers, mast or chains, PaxLift utilises three lifting columns to provide a smooth, safe lift, with fully hydraulic suspension for maximum comfort during driving.
