Edinburgh Airport is enhancing the provision of sustainable transport options for passengers with the introduction of dozens of new electric vehicle charging points.

Forty EV chargers are now situated in three of the airport's car parks, allowing travellers to charge their electric vehicles before or after their flight.

The chargers have been installed as part of Edinburgh Airport's Low Carbon Energy Project, which will also see a solar farm installed on the airfield.

The FastPark valet parking option benefits from five of the chargers, meaning that passengers can book to have their car plugged in while they are away and return to a fully charged vehicle.

Gordon Robertson, chief communications and sustainability officer at Edinburgh Airport, said: "It's important to us that we provide the infrastructure to support sustainable transport options to and from the airport, and the introduction of EV chargers in three of our car parks will help us do that.

"We know there is an ever-growing demand for charging points as more and more people make the switch to electric, and we're looking forward to seeing these in use across the airport campus now they are live.

"We have ambitious plans to reduce emissions as set out in the Zero Carbon pillar of Greater Good, our sustainability strategy, and this is one way we can help drive theseĀ down and ensure a sustainable future for the airport."
