Car pooling is a quick, convenient way for people to complete their air journey by car. People can book their car by clicking on a few buttons in an app, and no keys are necessary when they pick up the car. As a member of Sunfleet, people book and open their car using an app in their mobile phone or a smartcard. Then it’s simply a matter of driving off.
“Car pooling is a new option that our passengers have asked for. So we are pleased that we can now offer this kind of option via Sunfleet,” says Leo Schneede, manager of transport parking facilities at Swedavia Malmö Airport.
Sunfleet is the largest car pool in Sweden, with more than 1,000 cars at over 350 car pool locations in some 40 cities and towns. The number of members is growing by about 20 per cent a year, and today there are just over 31,000 members.
“We already have locations near the main train stations in Sweden. The fact that we can now have our car pool operations at airports is an important component in our being able to offer a comprehensive travel solution. This gives further incentive for people to start car pooling,” says Peter Algurén, CEO of Sunfleet.
Sunfleet will initially keep two Volvo cars at Malmö Airport, two at Göteborg Landvetter Airport and four at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. All cars are classified as “green” or environmentally friendly. Sunfleet already operates at Visby Airport. The aim is to expand this partnership to more airports in the next phase.
