Experience the high life – two worlds in one bus

Send your passengers on a high-life journey: With the Skyliner, we have brought together two top-class bus worlds in one vehicle for you. On the lower level, it captivates with its luxurious lounge ambience, on-board kitchen, WC and the largest luggage compartment in the double-decker class. Two spacious stairways lead you to the light-flooded upper deck with optimal seating comfort and a unique panoramic view.

Our double-decker coach is our flagship and is sure to bring delight on every journey – inside and out. The skilful mix of curves and edges of its multi award-winning Sharp Cut-Design is visually impressive and ensures the best aerodynamics. During the journey, you will benefit from the latest assistance systems and the constantly evolving, powerful Euro 6 engine generation.

How beauty becomes an economic factor

The Skyliner combines sophisticated style elements such as the visor look of the forebody, the dynamically angled wheel arches and the diamond cut of the windows along the edge of the roof to form the perfect exterior. The Sharp Cut-Design is not only stunning to the eye, its aerodynamics are also second to none. And the clever design elements in the interior seamlessly enhance the unique travel experience.

Beauty that also ensures the best in aerodynamics: three-dimensional curved windscreen, flush doors and skylights, lateral indentations and defined separation edge at the rear.

Visual highlights

The full-LED headlights with a black trim are not just an eye-catching feature. together with the ring-shaped LED daytime driving lights – ‘Angel Eyes’ – they ensure an optimal view and visibility on the road.

Feel-good space with a panoramic view

The large glass dome at the front, the skylights and the large ceiling windows turn the upper level into a light-flooded viewing terrace.

Equipment as individual as your needs

A journey with the Skyliner means relaxation and rest from the moment your passengers board. A variety of equipment details ensures an appealing feel-good atmosphere on board, from interior design, air conditioning and entertainment to the on-board kitchen and the WC which can be used at all times, to abundant storage space for luggage.

On-board luxury

On-board luxury

There is only one class in the Skyliner for your passengers: the luxury class. This is guaranteed by features such as the numerous adjustment options of the comfort seats. The comfortable standing height of 1.80 meters also ensures that all on-board travellers feel at ease. The standard equipment in the Skyliner includes the optimum ambient temperature. Our two-zone air-conditioning system provides the upper and lower decks with heat or a cool breeze, independently of each other.

In the spacious, functional kitchenette, you can prepare freshly brewed hot drinks and hot snacks for your passengers at any time. And the clever concept of LED lighting throughout the interior illuminates both levels at any time of the day and during the night, depending on your requirements.

Multi-Media Coach

Everything at a glance with the
Multi-Media Coach

With our latest Multi-Media Coach (MMC) in the cockpit, your drivers will always have control over navigation, mobile phones and entertainment for their passengers. The navigation system was specially developed for coach traffic and reliably informs you about traffic restrictions, such as the height and weight of your vehicle. And thanks to precise traffic information, you can swiftly avoid traffic jams and get your passengers to their destination quicker and more safely.

To entertain your passengers, your Multi Media Coach receives a variety of radio programs in both analogue and digital formats. In addition, the MMC offers the option to play your own audio files and that of your passengers via USB port, SD card or Bluetooth connection. You can also use your MMC as a hands-free system for two mobile phones at the same time.

Luxury class storage space

A class of its own

With our double-decker coach, you can offer up to 85 passengers a luxury travel experience, even when it comes to luggage, without any limits: the Skyliner is in a class of its own even when it comes to storage. With a volume of up to 11 m³, it offers the largest luggage compartment of all double-decker buses.

With the Skyliner, we make loading and unloading the luggage compartment as easy as possible: Thanks to an opening angle of up to 90 degrees, the luggage compartment flaps can be opened up to 2.24 meters high. Special hinges on the luggage compartment door also increase the clear width of the aisle. And the additional door inside the lower deck allows access to the luggage even during the journey.

Innovative stairs solution

With the latest equipment option of the Skyliner, we arranged the front stairs on the right-hand side. The innovative staircase offers additional comfort on board with more seats, and it also speeds up getting on board and vacating the vehicle.

Innovative stairs solution

Quick boarding

Thanks to the stairs immediately next to the front access, your passengers can access the upper deck quickly and conveniently. This speeds up the boarding process. Both the passengers and your company will benefit from shorter waiting times when getting on board and vacating the vehicle.

Additional seats

Additional seats

The repositioned front stairs on the right-hand side creates more space in the passenger area. This means your Skyliner with 4-star seat layout can be equipped with two additional seats. Depending on the equipment, this can give you up to 79 seats.

Skyliner cockpit

More comfort for the driver

The Skyliner with staircase on the right also offers more comfort in the cockpit area: The driver now has an extra 70 mm for the seat adjustment, plus additional storage space. Another advantage: It is no longer necessary to pass by this area to reach the upper deck.

Skyliner front passenger seat

Optimised front passenger seat

We have redesigned the front passenger seat of the Skyliner for the model with the stairs on the right-hand side: It offers the front passenger or the tour guide more comfort and improved handling. At the same time, the well-thought-out folding seat design leaves more space in the area of the entrance.

Vehicle technology for exacting demands

The double-decker coaches also perform at the top of their class in terms of technical features: That is because we designed the Skyliner down to the smallest detail – from the engine, transmission and suspension technology to the cost-effectiveness ratio between size, weight and use of space.

MAN D26 Common Rail engine

Environmentally friendly power pack

Reliable, economical, powerful and environmentally friendly: The new MAN D26 common-rail engine does a great job behind the engine compartment flap of your Skyliner. The six-cylinder in-line engine with 375 kW (510 HP) offers an outstanding consumption-performance ratio and runs smoothly and quietly. The combination of exhaust gas recirculation EGR with the SCR filter ensures a maximum reduction of pollutant emissions. Your NEOPLAN Skyliner complies with the Euro 6 emission standard. At the same time, the drive system achieves particularly low fuel consumption and thus ensures excellent travel economy.

The ingenious aerodynamic design of the Skyliner also contributes to the lower fuel consumption. And the significantly higher passenger capacity of your double-decker further adds to the overall economic viability of your coach.

MAN TipMatic® Coach

Technology for a smooth ride

Gliding along comfortably. Provide your passengers with a relaxing travel experience on every route. The MAN TipMatic® coach generation of your Skyliner has the perfect shifting strategy for any driving situation – from taking off on inclines, slopes and curves to providing assistance in heavy traffic. The intelligent transmissions technology increases driving comfort considerably. You will also benefit from increased road safety and lower fuel consumption.

The active, electronically controlled suspension CDS (Comfort Drive Suspension) not only increases driving comfort, but also road safety. Electronically controlled dampers respond to changing loading and driving conditions at lightning speed and adjust the hardness and intensity of the damping to the new conditions in milliseconds. This means that the vehicle always stays safely on course on bends and when at full load.
