Infinity Limbers Up for World Cup
A well-known tyre brand may have strong connections with the 2010 FIFA World Cup, but many fans arriving to view the action during the summer of 2010 will also – without realising it – have Infinity Tyres play a part in their football experience. The Al Dobowi Group product is currently the preferred brand for the shuttle buses used at the Cape Town International Airport. There are currently 19 busses operating on Infinity tyres, with sizes 12R22.5, 425/65R22.5; 385/65R22.5 and 12.00R20 fitted.
The buses belong to Swissport, Menzies and Bidair, and the company holding the contract to service vehicles at Cape Town International Airport is Blackstone. The owner of Blackstone, Mukhtar Pophlonker, has selected Infinity as the preferred brand for all vehicles at Cape Town International. Mr. Mukhtar estimates that the air traffic will increase by an additional 200 flights per day during the 2010 Fifa Soccer World Cup, which will place tremendous pressure on the shuttle busses and ancillary vehicles. He believes, Infinity notes, that the tyres he has chosen will provide a reliable and suitable solution during this high use period.
