KLM takes flight with Toyotas

THE 50th Toyota car has been delivered to KLM UK under a solus agreement which saw the Dutch airline start switching its 170-strong mixed car fleet to the Japanese marque last summer. The agreement is on three-year/60,000-mile contract hire with full maintenance and the fleet is equally split between job-need and perk cars under a four-band structure.

Corolla 1.4, and Avensis 1.8 GS models are for sales representatives and Avensis 2.0 GLS and CDX models are available to management. The deal, involving taking delivery of new cars on three-year contract hire agreements, replaces a policy of leasing ex-demonstrators over two years from various companies.

The agreement also sees the 170 company car drivers undergoing an advanced driver training course with Drive & Survive. A company spokesman said: 'This is the first time we've offered any driver training and hope that it will reduce the number of accidents and therefore reduce costs.'
