UK, government supports world’s first electric Urban Air Port® hub

UK, government supports world’s first electric Urban Air Port® hub

The innovative hub for flying taxis Urban Air Port® Air-One® was the winner of the Future Flight Challenge competition, organized by the British government. The competition aims to develop aviation infrastructures and systems that enable the next generation of electric and autonomous aerial vehicles. Air-One® is the world’s first fully operational hub for future electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, such as cargo drones and aerial taxis, which will be launched in Coventry later this year.

The strategic importance of the hub for air mobility

The building is equipped with an innovative, completely autonomous and zero-emission infrastructure for the enhancement of the air mobility of the future. The ambitious project will bring together industry, government and users to demonstrate how the potential of sustainable urban air mobility can be unlocked to reduce congestion and air pollution and holistically decarbonise transport while enabling the movement of passengers and goods seamless.

NASA predicts that air-to-urban mobility in the United States alone could be worth as much as $ 500 billion in the short term, and says a significant barrier to market growth is a lack of infrastructure, a problem that the Urban Air facility has. Port® aims to solve. Hyundai Motor Group’s Urban Air Mobility Division has chosen Urban Air Port® as a priority infrastructure partner to support the global growth of this new sector. The South Korean company plans to launch your eVTOL aircraft and to support the wider ecosystem of urban air mobility.

Hyundai Motor Group is already supporting the development of Air-One® as part of its aircraft marketing plan, which the company will implement by 2028. The company plans to install more than 200 zero-emission facilities around the world in the next five years, in response to global demand.
