Egis and Urban-Air Port® Ltd announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly develop Urban-Air Port’s compact and modular vertiport solutions with a strong focus on the patented, technology-driven Vertical Airfield that will become the game changer in scaling-up eVTOL operations and creating a global Advanced Air Mobility Network.
Egis’ mission of creating and operating intelligent infrastructure capable of responding to the climate emergency and their multi-disciplinary approach of expert teams working closely across every aspect of mobility, energy and the built environment will strengthen Urban-Air Port’s vertiport solutions. Specialist engineering and operational input will be the initial focus of this new partnership.
Together, Egis and Urban-Air Port will pioneer vertiport solutions for the Advanced Air Mobility Sector by enabling a zero-emission-mobility-ecosystem that will cut congestion and air pollution from cargo and passenger transport utilising best-in-class design, technology and manufacturing. Their shared mission is to better connect cities and communities and pave the way for renewable energy-driven transportation networks.
Herve Drévillon, Project Director at Egis said: “Urban-Air Port’s Vertical Airfield project offers an efficient footprint, class-leading passenger experience and an innovative terminal building design. We are looking forward to working with the team, bringing our understanding of airspace management and integration, all-round engineering experience and a track record in operating 20 airports around the world, to help make it happen.”
“We are very excited to join forces with Egis to deliver compact vertiport solutions that will become a global game changer,” says Andrea Wu, Chief Executive Officer at Urban-Air Port Ltd: “Egis has extensive experience and a world-class reputation for designing and operating a wide array of transport infrastructure systems from highways to airports.
