Virgin Atlantic Airways to use Chevrolet Equinox hydrogen fuel cell vehicles at Los Angeles International Airport
Virgin Atlantic Airways will use Chevrolet Equinox hydrogen fuel cell vehicles for its complimentary ground transfer service for upper class passengers for planes landing at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Beginning later this month (in March), Virgin will use three zero-petroleum, zero-emission Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell electric vehicles, fueled with hydrogen, as ground transportation shuttles, running to and from the airport serving the Los Angeles area. The partnership opens the door to possible future activities between Chevrolet and Virgin, involving the same type of service for New York. In addition, the relationship will help build awareness of environmentally friendly technologies and their sustainability.
The deal will help the Virgin brand reduce its carbon footprint on the ground, which is an important cornerstone of company’s environmental strategy.
