Catch a flight, charge a car at Portland airport



Electric vehicle charging stations are now available at Portland International Airport, the Port of Portland announced Friday.

The stations, located in the short-term parking garage, also available to customers using Gold Key Valet parking, are provided at no additional cost.

Six charging stations are on the fourth floor of the garage near the south skybridge that connects to the airport terminal building. Two charging stations are available for valet customers; valet staff will perform the charge.

The Port of Portland said it uses two charging stations for its two electric vehicles. It added that 24 percent of its vehicle fleet is powered by electric, compressed natural gas, flex-fuel or hybrid systems.
