Twelve parking bays with EV Charging facilities have been installed in the Short Stay Car Park at the airport, providing passengers with the opportunity to charge their vehicle while travelling, with a Rapid Charger installed to enable those collecting passengers to gain a charge for up to 100 miles, in less than 30 minutes.

This is a big step forward in the airport’s commitment to a greener future. Belfast City Airport is proud to be the first airport in Northern Ireland to reach Level 3 in the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme.

Mark Beattie, Chief Operating Officer at Belfast City Airport, said:

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. 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.

Installation work began in April and the EV points have been up and running since May.

Philip Rainey, Weev CEO, said:

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 it’s expertise in delivering a suite of easily accessible charging points for Belfast City Airport passengers.

We are proud of this partnership that enables Belfast City Airport to record a ‘Northern Ireland first’ while providing an enhanced service for its passengers.
