Mr. Sivakumar V, Sales Director, Scania Commercial Vehicles India, Mr. Staffan Arvas, Strategist, Brand & Marketing Communications, Scania CV AB and Mr. Agy George from Aeon Connect Travels were part of the occasion. These buses will connect travelers from Ernakulam to Hyderabad.
Expressing happiness over the delivery of the first Scania Metrolink buses in Kerala, Mr. Sivakumar V, said, “This handover confirms Scania’s ability to offer comprehensive solutions for a broad range of passenger transport needs and the entry of Scania in Kerala. Our vehicles are recognized for their safety, high level of uptime and efficiency in fuel consumption, important features for a quality public transportation system.”
Aeon Connect Travels has been founded by Mr. Aby George, first time entrepreneur and businessman from Indore with interests in construction. While the initial service will focus on one route, Aeon Connect Travels will eventually be connecting many more routes from Kerala to the rest of the country.
Scania has established a relationship with EVM Motors, an exclusive dealer in Kerala for haulage trucks and buses.
Launched at Busworld in Mumbai February last year, the Scania Intercity Coach range introduces multi-purpose coaches for medium and long distance luxury travel for the Indian market.
