Alexander Dennis Limited and BYD Europe announced that Glasgow Airport has switched its long stay car park shuttle to zero-emission electric mobility with the introduction of three BYD ADL Enviro200EV battery buses. BYD is a global leader in battery technology and electric bus manufacturing, while ADL is a subsidiary of leading independent global bus manufacturer NFI Group Inc. The investment makes Glasgow Airport the first in the UK to switch its official car park shuttles to all-electric operation. The buses are operated by NCP on behalf of the airport and replace three existing diesel buses.

The 100% emissions-free, pure-electric buses and the charging infrastructure have been supplied by Alexander Dennis and its partner BYD. Their introduction has been supported by Transport Scotland with a GBP 450,000 Green Bus Fund grant.

Charging infrastructure for the buses has been installed at their operating base in the airport's long stay car park. Alexander Dennis, BYD and the partnership's utilities partner conducted a site survey to ensure that the installation and commissioning process was smooth and quick.
