A Spanish eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) vehicle maker and a Swedish vertiport developer have agreed to work together on advanced air mobility (AAM) projects.

Crisalion Mobility and Kookiejar signed a strategic agreement to partner on the development of vertiports for electric aerial vehicles (EAV). 

Vertiport developer Kookiejar is based in Sweden with offices in Dubai and Monaco and has partnerships for its network operations and pilot projects with Airqual Technologies, ADB Safegate, Jetpak, Aerit, Oilchain and Flying Basket.

Cirisalion and Kookiejar plan to identify potential synergies between the Kookiejar vertiports and Crisalion Mobility operations at those facilities.

The companies intend to focus on freight transport, medical emergencies and urban, regional and tourism missions.

Crisalion and Kookiejar plan to start training programs for the teams at the two companies and research future technologies to enhance the efficiency and safety of air mobility operations.

The Kookiejar vertiport development approach was inspired by Ikea in Sweden. Kookiejar vertiports use a scalable, modular construction method.

Crisalion Mobility last year agreed to work on AAM projects in Latin America and Europe with Bluenest by Globalvia. Those companies signed an agreement to collaborate and conduct demo tests and the integration of EAV vertiports.

The companies plan to optimize the processes to make EAVs and vertiports compatible, including smart mobility in and around the vertiports.

Numerous vertiports are being developed around the world for the takeoff, landing and maintenance of eVTOL vehicles.

The companies also plan to exchange technical information and develop locations and routes for the vertiports.

The idea is for Crisalion EAVs to be operated by third parties.

The Latin America and America agreement is expected to form part of regional commercial efforts in Europe and Latin America to test and validate new technologies to enhance passenger experience and the operation of associated infrastructure, according to the companies.

Vertiport facilities to manage the takeoff, landing, charging and maintenance of EAVs including air taxis are being established by companies including Volatus Infrastructure and Aeroauto Vertiport Development, which is readying retail showrooms for flying vehicle sales in Florida and Texas to start.
