dnata takes delivery of electric airside vehicles in Amsterdam

dnata has taken delivery of 15 electric cars to replace diesel airside vehicles at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

The 15 cars will soon be joined by five more and was made possible by the installation of charging infrastructure at the airport.

The new arrivals will help dnata reduce its carbon footprint by 50% by 2030 as part of its eight-year green operations strategy.

More than 65% of dnata’s 250 pieces of ground support equipment (GSE) in the Netherlands is now electric or powered by solar energy.

The remaining GSE is fuelled by 100% hydro-treated vegetable oil (HVO) biofuel, resulting in a 90% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions throughout its lifecycle.

Jan van Anrooy, Managing Director of dnata Netherlands, said: “We are committed to investing in green equipment and infrastructure to maximise environmental efficiency across our operations. Through close collaboration with our partners, we have promptly leveraged the airport’s new infrastructure by replacing our entire car fleet. As a result, over two-thirds of our fleet now operates on electric power or solar energy.”
