establishes Irizar USA as Trailways affiliated partner


Fairfax, VA – August 31, 2018 – Irizar S. Coop, a luxury motorcoach manufacturer with global headquarters in Spain’s Basque Country, introduced itself to the United States market in early 2016 through initial distributor INA Bus Sales, LLC, a Trailways affiliated partner.

Irizar’s i6 model motorcoaches have enjoyed such rapid market penetration here that Irizar S. Coop is reinforcing its commitment to the U.S. market by establishing a new wholly owned and operated subsidiary, Irizar USA, LLC, headquartered in suburban Las Vegas, NV. Irizar USA takes over the role of Irizar’s exclusive dealer and distributor for sales and aftersales support for the U.S. marketplace.

“We congratulate Irizar USA as our Trailways affiliated partner and hope that this new company will enjoy the longevity of its 129-year-old parent corporation, known for its premium brand,” said Eva Hotard, president and chief executive officer of Trailways Transportation System, Inc.

Heading Irizar USA’s leadership team are President Axier Etxezarreta, previously director general of Irizar Brasil, Ltda., and Vice President Chad Dixon, formerly chief operating officer at INA Bus Sales.

Dixon explained that Irizar USA offers two versions of the Irizar i6 model coach adapted specifically for the U.S. market. A versatile, commuter and touring coach suitable for school, charter, motorcoach and mining transportation, the Irizar i6 is 45 feet long and can accommodate 56 passengers. It has an integral chassis; a Cummins engine; a 6-speed, Allison B500 automatic transmission, and complies with all U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) regulations and EPA 13 emissions requirements. It comes in two vehicle heights, 12’3” and the SuperCargo model at 12’11”. “The SuperCargo version offers best-in-class storage capacity,” Dixon added.

President Etxezarreta said, “We are completely dedicated to remain close to our clients, working elbow to elbow with operators, adapting to their needs. Our entire team knows that providing quality second to none and VIP, concierge-level service at all times are keys to a strong future in the market.”

Etxezarreta extended thanks to Michael and Olga Haggerty and their team members at INA Bus Sales “for the achievements and great accomplishments that were made during the introduction and initial chapter” of Irizar’s entry into the U.S. market. “They have our gratitude for the great relationship they have had with the people of the Irizar team.”

Trailways through its Affiliated Partners Program maintains a close working relationship with industry-related supplier and vendor companies, as well as other tour and travel service entities, to ensure that its group of motorcoach companies receives the latest and most effective technology, information, services and products needed to maintain superior delivery of safe, comfortable, reliable passenger service.
