The body is also sold outside of the UK. Arriva Denmark had 14 with Volvo B7L chassis - their only double deckers - in Copenhagen in a yellow livery, under contract to HT (now HUR) which is similar to TfL in London, one was destroyed by fire, the other 13 were transferred to Ensignbus for resale, with at least one being converted to open top and sold to Italy. City Trafik in Copenhagen also have 22 examples with Volvo B7L chassis.
