Interparking enhances Brussels Airport car parks with the addition of 700 EV charging stations

Brussels Airport - General

Interparking, responsible for the public car parks at Brussels Airport, is rolling out more than 700 parking spaces equipped for electric vehicles in its car parks at Brussels Airport. The installation of these charging stations is an important investment to answer to the needs of the passengers and staff, as the use of electric vehicles is growing in Belgium. This initiative marks a significant step in the commitment of Interparking and Brussels Airport towards more sustainable transport and innovation. 

On the road to greener mobility 

Interparking offers more than 13.000 parking spaces at Brussels Airport. Until recently, EV drivers had access to 50 specially equipped parking spaces on site. Given the growing use of electric cars, 500 new charging stations for passengers have been installed in P1 and P3, conveniently located in front of the airport terminal. Two hundred new charging stations specifically for staff have been added to the P1 parking area, boosting the total number of parking spaces equipped with charging capabilities to 750. 

"At Interparking, we are committed to contributing to a greener mobility. The addition of these charging points at Brussels Airport is just a fraction of our ambitious project: to extensively roll out electric charging stations in Belgium and in the 8 other European countries we serve," says Roland Cracco, CEO of Interparking.  

"Electric mobility is an integral part of Brussels Airport's sustainability strategy," explains Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport. “All our passengers are already transported on tarmac in electric busses and we are fully electrifying our own company fleet. Overall, the number of electric cars is growing, so the need for charging points increases as well. Providing the necessary infrastructure for our passengers and staff is therefore a priority. Thanks to our partner Interparking, passengers will be able to recharge their vehicles in our car parks while on holiday.” 

Recharching your car while recharging yourself 

The car parks are equipped with the latest generation charging stations allowing the passenger to recharge their car while they recharge their own batteries on holiday. The Interparking team is currently finalizing the wiring and technical installation to ensure a smooth and secure user experience. The 700 new charging stations will be gradually activated from the beginning of March. 

The power stations can be used with any charging card and these parking spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. If activated by Pcard+ from Interparking, no activation costs will be applied. Optimized for long-term parking, these slow-charge stations are a perfect match for cars that are left stationary for multiple days or weeks while the owner is traveling. There are no additional fees for parking at these charging stations even after the charging process is complete.
