Working in partnership with electric vehicle charging experts Franklin Energy, in total nine chargers will be installed across the staff car park, Meet & Greet and the Short Stay car park.

Installation is complete within the staff car park and Meet & Greet, with the final phase due to begin in early 2020. 

Mark Bailey, Director of Airport Planning and Development at Cardiff Airport, said: “The introduction of electric vehicle charge points is an exciting next step in our Environmental Flight Path, which is our timeline of immediate and short term environmental goals.

“We’re delighted to be able to offer this facility to team members and customers with electric and hybrid vehicles, we’ll be working with Franklin Energy into the new year to increase the number of EV charge points across the site and enhance the experience for our customers.”

Robert Byrne, Managing Director at Franklin Energy added: “This is a brilliant contract win for us. Cardiff Airport is embarking on a large project to roll out EV charging and we’re delighted that we've been selected as the preferred partner.

“We look forward to delivering first phase of this install and moving forward supporting the estates management team, planning, advising and implementing their charge point installation strategy now and in the future.”

This project is the next step in Cardiff Airport’s recently unveiled Environmental Flight Path – a timeline of immediate and short term environmental goals. These milestones will be delivered in line with the organisation’s vision to become a ‘Carbon neutral Airport’ and is a key consideration for the Airport’s Masterplan development over the next two decades.
