Skyway Aviation Handling Company (SAHCO) has reached a milestone by acquiring eco-friendly ground support equipment to boost its operations.

This new fleet of ground handling equipment was manufactured by Charlatte Manutention, the specialist manufacturer based in France. All the equipment is battery-powered, making the units a truly green option, as the world continues to battle against global warming. These electric tractors are all designed with strong reliable components able to withstand any type of climate.

SAHCO thus becomes the first ground handling company in Nigeria to acquire this latest model of technology. The electric tractors require little maintenance and use rechargeable batteries, thereby making them cost effective compared to diesel-powered tractors. They are also ergonomically designed, which helps with manoeuvres on the ramp, which is essential in the provision of safe, speedy and efficient service.
