Electric cars can now be powered up at Dublin Airport

Dublin Airport Authority has installed new charging points in its Terminal 2 car park.

IF YOU DRIVE an electric car you might be pleased to know that you can now power up at Dublin Airport after it announced the installation of five new charging points for e-cars.

Five parking spaces and charging points have been installed at the airport and have been operational since Monday as part of a joint venture between Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) and the ESB.

Three electric car parking spaces with accompanying charging units are in the Terminal 2 multi-storey car park while there are a further two spaces in the executive car park which is on the first level of the multi-storey car park in Terminal 2.

The airport authority said in a statement that it was looking to promote sustainable transport.

“We are championing the idea of electric car usage while enhancing the customer experience by providing an extra facility for airport users.

“We are trialling them here in T2, and if the demand is there we will look at installing them in the other car parks,” DAA landside facilities manager Valerie Singleton said.

Full recharging of an electric car from zero power usually takes between four and five hours.
