Guest lands airport deal

Time 3:49 am, August 14, 2012

WEST Midlands dealership Guest Fiat has reached for the sky for one of its customers.

Guest has supplied 25 new Fiat Pandas to the British Aviation Authority, the organisation that looks after the UK’s airports.

The Willenhall-based dealer is the preferred supplier to BAA of the Panda fleet, which are all finished in white and fitted with airport standard flashing roof beacons. The cars are being used for airfield duties across some of Britain’s main airports, including Birmingham, Manchester and Gatwick.

‘The Panda was the perfect choice for the airport authority,’ said Richard Turner, corporate manager, Guest Fiat. ‘It came out top above the competition in terms of value for money, size, space, reliability and ecological values.’

Guest Fiat has plans to supply more cars to BAA as the agreement gets off the ground.
