Air Berlin reserves Wheeltug delivery slots
WheelTug reported the execution of a Slot Purchase Agreement with Air Berlin. With 110 new reservations the order book of WheelTug aircraft drive systems grows to 549 delivery slots reserved by ten airlines from Europe, America, the Middle East and the Far East. The WheelTug electric drive system uses high-performance electric motors, installed in the nose gear wheels of an aircraft, to provide full mobility while on the ground, without the use of the aircraft’s jet engines or tugs for both pushback and taxi operations.
