Up to eight new public electric-charging stations will be installed at Winnipeg’s James Richardson International Airport.

The Manitoba government says the move is to support green technology and electric vehicles, including to convert gas luggage tugs to electric vehicles.

“This partnership will result in creating opportunities for everyone, from members of the public to taxi drivers and airport employees, to make greater use of electric vehicles,” said Premier Greg Selinger.

The province also plans to announce further public electric vehicle charging stations in other areas of Manitoba, Selinger added.

Winnipeg’s airport is already home to a charging station for battery-electric buses.
