Aberdeen Airport installs electric car charging points

Electric car charging
Customers using the car parks at Aberdeen Airport can charge for free

Aberdeen International Airport has installed six electric car charging points.

The new service is free for customers using the car parks. There are four charging points on the first floor of the Short Stay zone and two more points in the Priority area.

Passengers wishing to use the electric car charging points can turn up at the Short Stay or Priority car parks 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.

Here are the airport’s parking charges.

Jemma Forrest, Aberdeen International Airport’s Travel Services Manager:

“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.”

Supplier

The charging points were installed by UK company Podpoint.

Aberdeen International Airport is currently undergoing a £20 million terminal transformation project, earmarked for completion in autumn 2019.
