Adelaide Airport is set to become the first in Australia to electrify its bus fleet with new electric buses to be in service next year.
The airport announced the change as part of its appointment of airport transit service SkyBus as the new operator of its airside and landside shuttle buses for the next five years.
The advanced buses will be made by Adelaide bus manufacturer Precision Buses.
Precision launched Australia’s first locally engineered and built electric bus in 2019 (pictured), and in October it extended its Edinburgh manufacturing facility to build an order of 340 low-emission buses for the South Australian government.
Co-CEO of SkyBus’s owner Kinetic, Adam Begg said: “We are excited about Adelaide Airport’s appetite for innovation and what will be an exciting future for the airport.”
