The Electric Vehicle boom has been a notable topic in India, as consumers are now inclined towards making more conscious travel choices. Aiming to significantly contribute to the nation’s green infrastructure while comprehending passengers’ preferences, Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) has installed six robust DC fast EV charging stations at Terminals 1 & 2. With this CSMIA has created an ecosystem to fast-track its journey towards carbon neutrality. Starting from 09th December 2022, the brand-new fast charging stations are available for service & open as Public Charging Stations (PCS) for passengers and guests visiting CSMIA.

As an Ambassador for Change, CSMIA has commissioned the EV charging stations at P1 – Multi-level Car Parking (MLCP) at Terminal 1, P5 – MLCP at Terminal 2, and Airside of CSMIA. For privately owned EVs, commuters using the facility of EV charging stations at CSMIA’s MLCP would be billed only for charging sessions. EV users will be given a deduction against the parking fees.

Keeping passengers’ safety in mind, the airport has adhered to all the Regulators’ requirements, policies, and protocols.

What are the features?

  • CSMIA has successfully commissioned DC fast Chargers – CCS Type II Dual Gun 60 KW & GB/T (DC 001) Dual Gun 40 kW Charger at both the terminals on Landside.
  • Fast chargers deployed at MLCP are compatible with all the prevailing EV cars in the country.
  • Soon, there would be an augmentation of 60 kW & 240 KW capacity EV chargers catering to the changing needs of Airside logistics.
