Oswestry-based Owens Travel has introduced a new Panther coach to its fleet, a 12.8m, 57-seat B8R operating under the Travelmaster brand.
The new Panther has full air-conditioning, climate control, washroom, fridge, drinks facility, reclining seats, foot rests, all-age safety belts, radio, CD and DVD systems, and tinted windows.
Owens operates school contracts and runs a programme of excursions, day trips and short breaks across the country.
“We have worked hard to build a business that plays a meaningful role in the local community, while also attracting and looking after foreign tourists arriving into the UK and who play a vital part in stimulating our national economy,” says owner Mike Owen.
“A critical factor in achieving our objectives is having a fleet of modern, environment-friendly vehicles that are stylish, perform well and are liked by both passengers and drivers. The Plaxton Panther fits the bill perfectly.”
