Goldhofer presents »PHOENIX«, yet another world first, at inter airport Europe. 


Top performance in all fields of Ground Support Equipment (GSE): Goldhofer and Schopf will be attending the “inter airport Europe” trade show, to be held in Munich from October 6 - 9, 2015, as the leading address for one-stop shopping in the field of GSE. Pride of place at outdoor stand F50 will go to the international debut of the »PHOENIX«, a new high-speed aircraft towing tractor with an exciting combination of new technical features, low initial costs and minimum fuel consumption.

“We are deliberately not revealing any more details in advance about our latest world first! But one thing is for sure: If you come to inter airport Europe in Munich, you will not regret it,” says an enigmatic Stefan Fuchs, CEO of Goldhofer Aktiengesellschaft. At all events, the goal of Goldhofer and Schopf is again to cause a stir in the industry with the range of products on show. 

This year the world of aviation will once more be homing in on Goldhofer and Schopf. In Munich, Goldhofer will again be presenting the most complete product portfolio comprising the latest generation of innovative tow tractors – for aircraft in all weight categories and for every possible working situation on the apron. Goldhofer’s towbarless AST-1 aircraft tractor, for example, is a winner with regard to flexibility, reliability and economics. The new version of the Schopf F396 is a 70 t tractor that is set to become the industry benchmark with its new design and cutting-edge technology. For the 8 - 16 t weight category, Schopf has developed the F70, which is a convincing solution in terms of low operating and maintenance costs in apron service. A tractor with a worldwide track record of reliability and efficiency is the Schopf F110, which also comes in an electric version for zero-emission performance. 

The Goldhofer and Schopf stand in Munich will also feature the Schopf Powerhybrid ZH5, a tractor with hybrid drive for handling freight and baggage with trailer loads of up 50 t.

“inter airport Europe” has established itself as the leading industry trade show worldwide, catering for all aspects of airport operations. It is the event of choice for airport operators when it comes to sourcing airport equipment, technology and services for ground handling, terminal operations, airport IT and airport design and furnishings. More than 600 exhibitors from forty countries will be presenting a comprehensive range of airport products and equipment at “inter airport Europe 2015”. The event is expected to be attended by about 12,000 industry experts representing airports, airlines, air cargo carriers and aviation support.
