The Leisure Frontier group has acquired two new Scania coaches, and have plans to target the premium chartering market in Singapore.
Scania Singapore has handed over two K-series coaches to Leisure Frontier, a local bus chartering group seeking business expansion through its new subsidiary Frontier Tours Pte Ltd. With its first-ever acquisition of Scania vehicles to its fleet of more than 50 buses of different sizes, the Leisure Frontier group plans to target the premium chartering market in Singapore.
The two new Scania K-series coaches will be available for customers to charter from this month "Working closely together, we understood that Leisure Frontier wanted to elevate its business with a higher-end offering," said Anders Liss, Country Manager of Scania Singapore. "Today, we have delivered a sustainable transport solution to provide the group with the best profitability as it pursues new market opportunities."
Each of the two Scania K410 IB 4x2 features a high-torque engine and the Scania Opticruise gearbox for optimised gear changes, lower fuel consumption and greater comfort, while reducing clutch and synchromesh wear. To ensure high level of safety, the coach is equipped with the Electronic Braking System, Scania Retarder, Hill Hold and Traction Control.
"It's a switch in our business direction towards using Scania coaches, to offer a more refined coach ride for our customers," said Terence Ng, Managing Director of Leisure Frontier. "With full air suspension, the ride is more comfortable and less noisy for the premium customers we are targeting, such as large corporations."
To ensure the vehicles enjoy the best uptime and performance at a predictable operating cost, the Leisure Frontier group has also signed up for Scania's repair and maintenance contracts. The Leisure Frontier group plans to make the two new Scania K-series coaches available for customers to charter from this month.
