COBUS Industries has supplied Bristol Airport with an electric airside bus to carry passengers between the terminal building and aircraft.

The bus, which is being introduced on a trial basis, can carry 110 customers and its benefits will be studied and compared to the existing fleet.

Bristol Airport has previously announced plans to become Net Zero by 2030 with projects including using electric GSE, sustainable aviation fuel, electric and hydrogen infrastructure, and reducing the carbon supply chain.

Patricia Vasconcelos, CEO of COBUS Industries says: “The team of COBUS Industries, manufacturer of the COBUS airfield bus, is following this movement with large ambitions and high motivation to offer passengers the best possible comfort in our COBUS airfield bus and help our customers to drive their ambitious goals towards environmental protection, sustainability and future-oriented technologies on airports.”

James Shearman, Head of Sustainability at Bristol Airport says: “We are delighted to be working with COBUS Industries in helping deliver our sustainability targets and reducing airport emissions. This is only one project we are working on to achieve being a Net Zero Airport operation by 2030.”
