The world’s first full-scale passenger air taxi vertiport has been unveiled at the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) World Congress in Singapore. The VoloPort is the outcome of an exciting collaboration between Skyports and Volocopter, the German air taxi pioneer. Skyports and Volocopter announced that through their continued partnership they plan to introduce the first network of VoloPorts in support of commercial air taxi services in Singapore within two to four years.
The VoloPort is designed to offer an exceptional passenger experience, whilst not compromising on safety and security. For eVTOLs the VoloPort not only provides a place to take off and land, but also battery charging facilities. The VoloPort modular design can be easily adapted to fit rooftops, train stations, parking lots and other metropolitan locations. It will accommodate a wide range of electric air taxis, serving business travellers, tourists and anyone else fed up of sitting in traffic.
ARE YOU A LANDLORD?
Skyports and Volocopter are in the process of identifying a number of suitable sites for VoloPorts and viable air taxi routes across Singapore.
In order to build and grow an air taxi network, we are seeking partnerships with Singaporean landlords who have suitable sites that can be converted into VoloPorts. Our typical site requirements are:
- Sites with an available footprint >25,000 sq ft
- Clear roof tops or multi story car parks
- Clear approach and departure paths free from obstacles
- Sites located close to other transport modes
If you are interested in partnering with us and have a suitable site or would like further information, please get in touch.
Following our launch in Singapore and wider global expansion, Skyports are seeking further global cities to expand into and would be interested in hearing from government and city authorities’ who would like to explore urban aviation. If you are interested in a vertiport in your city, please get in contact.
