Mangaluru: In its efforts to reduce carbon footprint, Mangaluru International Airport has procured two SUV electric vehicles.

These SUVs will be used by the engineering and maintenance and landside operations team at the airport for their routine work. The airport has also drawn up a plan to procure either an electric bus or an SUV by the end of the current fiscal.

According to MIA spokesperson, the airport aims to become carbon neutral by 2024 and go ‘net zero’ by 2029. Receiving the keys to the electric SUVs from the dealers at the airport on Tuesday, the airport leadership team also outlined the plan to make two electrical charging stations operational in the parking area. “Work on setting up the charging station is nearly complete. Stakeholders – internal and others will be allowed to access this facility,” the spokesperson said.
