Mallaghan, a leading manufacturer of airport ground support equipment (GSE), has launched its new electric airport bus.

The all-electric Árbus has already completed successful trials with ABM Aviation.

Since its launch in 2019, the Mallaghan Árbus 50W is already used in more than 10 airports across Europe

Owen McKenna, Sales Director at Mallaghan, said: “We are delighted to formally launch the all-electric Árbus i-tec following its successful trials with ABM in the UK, and to be supporting the wider aviation industry on its journey to Net-Zero.

“The all-electric Árbus has the longest battery range of any airport bus on the European market and can be easily charged with existing infrastructure at airports.

“The flexible battery capacity makes the bus suitable for use at smaller regional airports or major hubs.

“At present we have three models of Árbus dimensions, with capacity right up to 118 passengers – the largest airport bus capacity currently on the market.

“As with all our GSE, the electric Árbus can be tailored to the exact needs of the customer and we work closely with airports and handlers to ensure these needs are met.

“We are acutely aware of the challenges faced by the aviation industry as it works to eliminate carbon emissions and we look forward to support our customers green journey.”
