Flying has never been more popular, and more passengers than ever pass through airports all over the world every day. While this is great news for airports and airlines, planes only make money when they are in the air. This poses a significant challenge for those whose job it is to get travellers from check-in to their airplane seat in the shortest possible time. COBUS INDUSTRIES GmbH, based in Wiesbaden, Germany, has the solution to this problem, at least for the journey from the terminal to the aircraft or vice versa. Its renowned passenger transfer buses are in daily use around the world.
