In the previous week, Erfurt-Weimar Airport took delivery of another fire-fighting vehicle from Rosenbauer. Two more copies should arrive by the end of 2024.
“Safety First has always applied at Erfurt Airport. Against this background, we are pleased that with the arrival of the new Panther airfield fire engine, we can now further increase the already high safety standard at the Thuringian state airport. Today's takeover is the first step in the modernization of our fleet at the airport fire brigade," says Managing Director Gerd Stöwer.
