Aberdeen International Airport has introduced a new fully electric bus to shuttle passengers between the terminal and car parks, in line with its sustainability strategy to decarbonise operations by the mid-2030s.

As part of its commitment to reducing carbon emissions, the airport is providing passengers using the free 30-minute drop-off service at the Long Stay Car Park with free access to the zero-emission 22-seater EMV e-Cityline bus.

Two electric buses will be added to the airport's fleet, contributing to the prevention of approximately 30 tCO2e emissions.

Jemma Cummings, Head of Travel Services and Commercial Products at Aberdeen International Airport, highlighted the importance of these electric vehicles in their sustainability efforts, reducing carbon emissions and benefiting from the airport's use of renewable energy.

Jackie Dunbar, Donside MSP and Net Zero Committee member commended the airport's green initiatives and emphasised their positive impact on local air quality and environmental credentials.

Liam Kerr, North East Region MSP and Net Zero Committee member welcomed the airport's commitment to emissions reduction and its potential to attract visitors through sustainable travel options.

The electric buses offer a comfortable and efficient experience for passengers, with quick charging times and near-silent operation. Charging stations have been installed at Aberdeen International Airport to support the fleet.

In line with its Sustainability Strategy, all three AGS airports have achieved carbon neutrality status for emissions under the group's control since 2020, demonstrating its ongoing commitment to sustainability.
