Aberdeen International Airport has debuted six new electric charging points in its short-stay and priority car parking areas.
The new service will be free for customers using the parking lots, with four units located on the first floor of the short-stay zone and two further points in the priority area. Podpoint, a provider of electric charging points, has installed the points at the airport.
Passengers wishing to use the electric car charging points can turn up at the short-stay or priority parking lots and pay the gate rate for the duration of their stay. Alternatively, car owners can pre-book parking online at least two hours in advance of arrival at the airport.
Jemma Forrest, travel services manager at Aberdeen International Airport, said, “It’s great to offer this new service to our customers for the first time. The process couldn’t be simpler. Once drivers have located a space, they need to plug in their car and use the Pod Point app on Apple or Android to access unlimited charging.
“At the airport, we’ve been working hard to improve our carbon footprint and we look forward to seeing the requirement for electric car charging points grow.”
Aberdeen International Airport is currently undergoing a £20m (US$25.5m) terminal transformation project, earmarked for completion in autumn 2019.
