First launched at the Euro Bus Expo in late 2018 and built on the renowned B11R chassis, this new premium coach features innovative design, fuel-saving aerodynamics, built in safety and a state-of-the-art passenger environment. Volvo Bus sees the 9900’s arrival as taking another great leap forward in coach design and technology.
Pierce Kavanagh, owner and Director of Pierce Kavanagh Coaches, said: “We have been operating for more than 55 years and during that time, we have built up a fleet of 40 vehicles, the majority of which are Volvo. The new 9900 will be a fantastic addition for us as we like to make sure our passengers travel in the highest possible comfort and style, and this new premium coach ensures just that.
“With touring being such a key part of our business, it is important that our passengers receive a great first impression of the coach they are going to be travelling in. The 9900 is an extremely striking looking vehicle, particularly with the ‘Z’ shaped window line and theatre seating and all of these aesthetic features are part of the overall passenger experience. The Volvo 9900 radiates a premium feel and is perfect for our requirements.
“The aftermarket support from Volvo is second to none, so if something were to go wrong, we know where to go for help and support and we have an excellent relationship with Irish Commercials in Naas.”
Dave Porter, Coach Sales Manager for Volvo said: “Pierce Kavanagh is one of our most prestigious customers and it is always a pleasure to work with them.
“The 9900 will give their drivers and passengers a premium experience and will definitely meet their expectations in terms of operational performance, aesthetic appearance and a smooth ride.”
Established for more than 55 years, Pierce Kavanagh is family owned and operated. Widely recognised as one of Ireland’s leading luxury coach operators, the company specialises in tours, private charter and schools’ contracts.
