London is home to Skyports and as Europe’s only megacity with a population of nearly 10 million and fifth largest metropolitan economy in the world, it is anticipated to be one of the largest markets for urban air mobility.
Los Angeles is one of the world’s most congested city and its notorious traffic problem begs for new solutions. LA is widely considered to be amongst the first adopter cities of urban air mobility services.
Singapore is a clear pioneer in the urban air mobility sector and are currently developing their own automated unmanned traffic management (UTM) systems in support of passenger taxis and urban drone deliveries.
Volocopter and its ground infrastructure partner Skyports will open what they say is the world’s first vertiport for eVTOL aircraft in Singapore on October 21.
Skyports is a London-based start-up on a mission to open the 3rd dimension – the sky – for regular transportation in cities. The company is seeking to establish a landing infrastructure network for passenger and cargo-carrying drones, and also has a goal to manage end-to-end cargo drone deliveries.
Skyports and Volocopter unveiled the Volo-Port concept at Greentech Festival 2019, to be used in Singapore later this year
