Mangalore International Airport Adds Two More Electric Vehicles to Its Vehicle Pool: Check Out

Mangalore International Airport (MIA) has added two more electric vehicles (EVs) to its vehicle pool for the current fiscal. With this, it has six EVs in total. The airport had initiated its journey towards sustainability by procuring two EVs in August 2022 for its routine operations and has added four more EVs since.

While five of the six EVs are regular sub-compact crossover SUVs, the sixth one is a SUV which has been modified into a ‘Follow Me’ or ‘Apron Control’ vehicle for exclusive use on the airside. With the recent addition of two more EVs, the MIA has not only completed its planned transition from fossil-fuel to EVs for FY23, but gone beyond. The airport has also drawn up a plan to set up a dedicated EV charging station on the airside for EVs that will operate there going forward.
