A Spanish eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) vehicle maker and a vertiport developer have joined forces to work on advanced air mobility (AAM) projects in Latin America and Europe.
Crisalion Mobility and Bluenest by Globalvia signed an agreement to collaborate and conduct demo tests and the integration of electric aerial vehicles (EAV) and 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.
“We are pleased to announce this strategic partnership with Bluenest, which represents a decisive joint step forward towards innovative Advanced Air Mobility solutions in Europe and Latin America and lays the groundwork to allow us to achieve our goals,” said Óscar Lara Rapp, chief operating officer of Crisalion Mobility. “This agreement clearly evidences our unwavering shared commitment to delivering innovation, efficiency and security in future Integrity aircraft operations at Bluenest by Globalvia vertiports; these are crucial factors which must underpin new air mobility.”
The 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 has retail showrooms for flying vehicle sales in Florida.
