Aligned with the Indian aviation ministry’s aim to decarbonise the aviation segment by 2030, Celebi Aviation India has introduced the first ever full-electric air-conditioned tarmac coaches for passenger transportation in India at the Delhi International Airport.

Twelve such EcoLife tarmac coaches, made by the JBM Group in India, have been deployed for the purpose. Powered by fast plug-in charging lithium-ion batteries, these buses run on highly efficient PSPM electric motors offering a silent and seamless ride.

Murali Ramachandran, CEO, Celebi India, said, “We welcome the government’s decision of reducing carbon emission in the aviation sector. We have already implemented solutions like taxi bots and bridge-mounted equipment in the past. These newly inducted low-entry Ecolife buses facilitate ease of boarding and de-boarding and are equipped with a wheelchair ramp for the specially-abled, with a designated space for docking the wheelchair. The buses are equipped with all modern features like Intelligent Transportation System, CCTV cameras, mobile charging USB sockets, and emergency safe stop buttons.”

Celebi Aviation is engaged in ground handling at various Indian airports, including Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kochi, Ahmedabad, Kannur and soon at the New Goa Airport at MOPA, and have plans to expand operations in other cities.
