Mercedes-Benz has provided another three Setra coaches to the German operator

German transport operator Blitz-Reisen GmbH from Overath has expanded its Mercedes-Benz fleet with three new Setra coaches.

With two new S 516 HDH and one S 517 HDH, the company based in North Rhine-Westphalia now operates 10 Setra vehicles – all of them TopClass coaches.

These 5-star vehicles are used throughout Europe by Blitz-Reisen and sometimes stay in the same place – including the Canary Islands – for several weeks.

Mercedes-Benz buses says every driver benefits from this streamlined TopClass fleet.

"They can be deployed flexibly, as they are very familiar with Setra coaches," Managing Director Bernd Rubarth says.

The new S 516 HDH with 46 seats and the S 517 HDH with 50 seats are equipped with a glass roof and the latest multichannel sound systems as well as all the safety and comfort systems currently available from Setra.

Blitz-Reisen GmbH has been a partner of the Setra brand since 1992.

Founded in 1986, Blitz-Reisen relies on consistency when it comes to the service life of its vehicles.

After around six years, they are replaced by new Setra TopClass coaches.
