Airport parking with electric vehicle charging
At which UK airports can you combine airport parking with electric vehicle (EV) charging?
With more and more electric and hybrid cars on the roads, there has been a steady rise in the number of EV charging facilities across the UK. And airport car parks are gradually coming to the party too, installing EV charging points and providing a charging service while you are away on your travels.
If you are driving your electric vehicle to the airport, it makes sense to be able to have your car charged up, while you are away. For some travellers, it could be a necessity, having completed a long road journey pre-flight and needing to embark on another one once they have returned to collect their car.
You may also be at the airport to pick up family or friends and need an EV top-up in the Short Stay car park while waiting in the Arrivals Hall.
Either way, we have compiled the latest information on which airport car parks in the UK currently offer EV charging points and charging services, including both on-airport car parks, which might be just a few minutes’ walk from the terminal entrance, and off-airport car parks, which usually require a short bus transfer to the terminal.
Here’s our handy guide to airport parking with EV charging. Let’s hope we will be adding even more airports and more airport parking facilities to the list soon!
