BYD contracts KLM to service electric bus fleet at Schiphol

BYD Auto today took an important step in its contract to supply a fleet of 35 BYD ebus pure electric buses to provide airside services at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport. It has signed a 10-year contract with KLM Equipment Services (KES) to maintain the buses and associated chargers to BYD's exacting standards


BYD’s contract to supply the buses to Schiphol, announced earlier this year, represented a major success for the company as it targets European bus and taxi operators with its purpose-designed ranges of fully electric buses and passenger cars. The involvement of KES as a reliable aftersales partner will ensure that the buses at Schiphol are maintained in excellent condition ready to transport passengers between the terminal buildings and waiting aircraft.

BYD Europe’s Senior After Sales Service Manager Jan van Noort said: "Selling our ebus to the Schiphol authorities was a major accomplishment for us and we have chosen a first rate professional support partner to ensure they deliver trouble free passenger carrying service for the next decade. We are delighted to appoint KES as our service partner at the airport – and who knows it better than KLM?"
