Passengers at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol can now opt for electrically-powered taxis operated by BBF Schipholtaxi or BIOS-groep.  The two companies jointly offer passenger transport services with a fleet of 167 Tesla Model S taxis.

Schiphol is believed to be the only airport in the world to offer a comparable service as no other airport has a fleet of sustainable taxis this size.  Schiphol says the electrically-powered taxis provide: “a significant boost to sustainable mobility at the airport.”

‘The new fleet of 100% electrically-powered Teslas allows passengers to continue their journey from Schiphol in total comfort.  At Schiphol, high-quality transport and an environmental conscience go hand in hand.  This represents a crucial step in our efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and become one of the world’s three most sustainable airports’, explained Jos Nijhuis, Schiphol Group’s President and CEO. The zero-emission taxis will be serving Schiphol for a period of at least four years, with an optional extension of up to eight years.
