Swissport has introduced a new set of electric vehicles at Basel (BSL) and Geneva (GVA) airports.

The new units, a mix of electric ground power units (eGPUs) and electric vans, aid Swissport in its target to transition to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, in line with the Science-Based Targeted initiative (SBTi).

Swissport aims to achieve 55% electric vehicles in its global fleet by 2032

With the introduction of the electric vehicles, Swissport Basel now touts a 49% electric ground support fleet, with Swissport Geneva utilising a slightly higher number at 53%, with targets to further expand its portfolio to 58% by 2025.

Bruno Stefani, CEO of Swissport Switzerland, Italy and France, says:

As a leading provider of airport ground services in Switzerland, Swissport is fully committed to reducing CO2 emissions. With the introduction of new electric vehicles, we are accelerating our transition to more sustainable operations.

This investment not only strengthens our fleet, but also underscores our pivotal role in the ecological transformation of the airline industry.

Swissport aims to utilise a global fleet of 55% electric vehicles by 2032, with a 42% reduction in CO2 from its own operations (Scope 1 & 2) compared to its output in 2022.
