Does anyone know who operates the 2 charge stations in the short term car park at Melbourne Airport?
They have Blink signage on them, but Blink claim they no longer operate them.

when blink was sold and resold several time the Australian assets where lost in the haze.

you can apply for blink card from the USA and see if you can get it to work. there was a phone number on the units plugshare picture

and failing that tell the melbourne airport they should replace them with supported models.

Thanks Gabz,
I have ordered a card from Blink a few weeks ago, but it hasn't materialized yet, hope they are still supplying cards to Aus inspite of them pulling out of the country.
Does anyone know if the charge stations at the airport still work with a blink card?
The Melbourne Airport Corp might well remove them if they find out they are "in limbo".
A guy from plugshare was telling me that MAC had promised to put charging infrastructure into the new carpark they are building, however when the budget for the build started to blow out, the first thing to go was the charge station infrastructure Image
