OmniServ and Heathrow are introducing new multi-passenger electric vehicles to the airport's terminal operation.

Dubbed the Multimobby, and able to carry up to seven people plus an operator through the airport’s terminal buildings quickly, efficiently and safely, the new vehicle will significantly enhance the assistance services provided to passengers with mobility issues or other disabilities.

Given the sheer size and scale of the terminal buildings at Heathrow, PRMs often appreciate the option of being transported in specialist vehicles. The Multimobby is made by Netherlands-based company Special Mobility, which already supplies specialist equipment designed for airport use. iCaddy equipment has already been deployed at Heathrow and the new electric movers can handle up to three chairs at once and provide an innovative and efficient method of transport for passengers.

The Multimobby is operator- and passenger-friendly and highly manoeuvrable, with the ability to turn on the spot, and fits into Heathrow’s lifts. The vehicle will stop automatically if a door is accidentally opened during operation.

For passenger comfort and ease of use, doorways are low, while a smart vehicle layout optimises leg space. When carrying fewer than seven passengers, bench seats can be folded up to allow more luggage to be transported.
