Belfast City airport now has 12 new Weev electric vehicle (EV) charging bays, enabling passengers to charge their vehicle while travelling.

A rapid charger has also been installed to enable those collecting passengers to gain a charge of up to 100 miles in less than 30 minutes.

“Belfast City Airport is renowned for providing best-in-class services that exceed passenger expectations and the introduction of the Weev EV charging points in our Short Stay Car Park further enhances choice and user experience,” said Mark Beattie, chief operating officer at Belfast City Airport.

“We are committed to reducing carbon emissions across the site, and encouraging sustainable modes of transport amongst passengers and staff is just one of the ways we can do that.

Weev and Zapmap share a live data partnership, which allows users of the Zapmap app and web map to access the live status and availability data of all Weev charge points at any time, making planning for charging stops even easier.

“Weev is delighted to add Belfast City Airport to our portfolio of leading organisations that we have partnered with to support Northern Ireland’s transition towards a greener, more sustainable motoring future,” said Philip Rainey, Weev CEO.

“We have a proven pedigree in building best-in-class charging infrastructure that is helping remove ‘range anxiety’. EV drivers can rely on our chargers, knowing that they will provide the power for their onward journeys. Our team has brought its expertise in delivering a suite of easily-accessible charging points for Belfast City Airport passengers.
