Car sharing goes electric at Frankfurt Airport
Two new providers are taking electro-mobility to a new level at Frankfurt Airport, according to the German gateway.
The airport notes that the popularity of sharing rental vehicles “is growing fast” as passengers seek alternatives to using their own cars or taking taxis or public transportation to get to and from the airport.
As a result of rising demand, the car sharing providers at Frankfurt Airport (FRA) have now been joined by two companies that rely exclusively on electric vehicles: deer and UFODRIVE, each of which has five dedicated parking spaces with charging capabilities next to Terminal 1 in parking facility P2.
Like other airport operators, Fraport AG has ambitious climate protection goals, and is firmly committed to reducing carbon emissions until it reaches net zero at Frankfurt Airport and all the other gateways in its global network.
“We’re also encouraging the companies we have contractual arrangements with to adopt clearly defined targets and solutions along these lines,” says Gerald Krebs, who is responsible at Fraport AG for parking and mobility.
“So we’re very pleased to be working with these two outfits to promote emissions-free, sustainable mobility at the airport.”
