British Airways Invests Millions of Pounds in Heathrow Airport Facility Renovation

British Airways is investing millions of pounds to refurbish the facilities at London Heathrow Airport.

The airline plans to progressively replace other operational support vehicles like tugs and cargo tractors with hybrid and electric vehicles. Over 750 pieces of equipment, including de-icing vehicles and baggage loading systems, are temporarily running on biofuel. This switch is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by over 6,000 tons per year compared to traditional diesel fuel.

Plans are in place to electrify passenger boarding stairs by the end of the year, aiming to further reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 370 tons annually. Twenty diesel-engined cargo loading vehicles will be gradually phased out and replaced with electric vehicles. In addition, 135 electric baggage tugs are being introduced.

Over the next two years, 38 diesel buses will be phased out gradually and replaced by 23 electric buses and 15 hybrid buses. A large charging park is also in the early stages of development.

British Airways has announced that it will invest £7 billion over the next three years to transform its operations, and this initiative is a part of that commitment.
