Gatwick taxis go green

Gatwick Airport’s official taxi company is going green.

Airport Cars Gatwick, which has been operating at the airport for more than five years, plans to replace all its taxis with electric or hybrid alternatives by 2020 – a first for any UK airport. The move is expected to reduce carbon emissions by 75%.

The company, which currently has 250 cars, will begin trialing electric and hybrid vehicles over the next few months before beginning the replacement of its current cars.
