Bristol Airport boosts EV charge point numbers

Bristol Airport boosts EV charge point numbers


Bristol Airport has added ten Pod Point EV charge points to its new multi-storey car park, with the ability to expand charge point numbers in the future.

The new units are part of the first wave in improving electric vehicle infrastructure across the airport. The company running Bristol Airport has said it intends to go carbon neutral, and will convert its own fleet to zero-tailpipe emission vehicles. Future charge point installations will be easily scaled up as part of the plans as the fleet expands.

Paul Baker, Surface Access Strategy Manager, Bristol Airport, said: “We are delighted phase one of the project has been so successful and improves the facilities available to passengers. Pod Point charge points are simple and easy to use. Prior to arrival at Bristol Airport passengers will need to download a free Pod Point app and set up an account.

“This is our first step to Bristol Airport being EV driver friendly and we are already looking at other locations around the Airport to extend the number of Pod Points on site.”

Those parking at Bristol Airport, but in the long stay or Silver Zone sites, can contact Ground Transportation staff on site, and assistance will be arranged to access the chargers.

The five new double-header units are accessed via Pod Point’s network. Find the charge points and other Pod Point units by using the network filters on Zap-Map below.
