You can collect empty wheelchairs and move them together in a row, also you can connect wheelchairs to the e-Mobby and you can ride with 3 passengers.
The luggage trolley also has the fixation, so 1 attendant can easily push a passenger in the wheelchair and take all the luggage.

1 person can push the wheelchair with the passenger and take all the luggage without problems.
The e-Mobby is an electric powered wheelchair with an attendant board, an innovative new modular electric wheelchair moving system, which can handle 2 wheelchairs with passengers, plus an attendant, and move them safely and efficiently around an airport. The e-Mobby also allows to move multiple empty chairs, making it easier to redeploy them to where they are needed.
The e-Mobby is only 68cm wide, so moving through the security gate at customs is possible.
