Glasgow Airport introduces electric busesFalkirk-based Alexander Dennis Ltd (ADL) (www.alexander-dennis.com) and BYD Europe (www.bydeurope.com) have jointly announced that Glasgow Airport has introduced three Enviro200EV battery buses to provide the shuttle service for its long-stay car park.

BYD is a global leader in battery technology and electric buses, while ADL is a subsidiary of global bus manufacturer NFI Group Inc.

The investment makes Glasgow Airport the first in the UK to switch its official car park shuttles to all-electric operation.

The project has been supported by Transport Scotland with a £450,000 Green Bus Fund grant.

The BYD ADL Enviro200EV buses for Glasgow Airport combine BYD’s reliable electric driveline and battery technology with Alexander Dennis bodies adapted to the requirements of airport operation.

The 10.8m-long vehicles have generous three-tier luggage racks, in addition to 23 seats and a wheelchair space opposite the rear doors. The charging infrastructure has been installed at their operating base in the airport’s long-stay car park.

Mark Johnston, Glasgow Airport’s managing director, said: “We are proud to be the first airport in the UK to incorporate a full-electric bus fleet into our car park operation.

"These ‘state of the art’ vehicles will play an important role in supporting our continued efforts to create a more sustainable business and will contribute significantly to reducing carbon emissions at the airport.

"Moving to a full-electric bus operation cuts the carbon emissions associated with passenger travel to and from our car park from 143 tonnes per year to zero.”
