The important experiment happens against the will of the participating parties relatively in a secret, as the modells of the Solaris Urbino are counted as a familiar spectacle on the airport. Of course, even the six buses – which have entered into service earlier - don't count as every – day modells: their engines are powered by compressed air. „The conscious and responsible energy economy is extraordinarily important for us" – announced the managing director of the airport. „We are proud to have the opportunity to participate in the test supporting the introduction of the alternative energy resources, as we agree with those experts according to who the hydrogen, electric and gas powered vehicles are the keys to the environmentally friendly mobility."
