Eve Air Mobility has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Ferrovial Vertiports, a subsidiary of leading global infrastructure operator Ferrovial, to explore the use of Eve’s Urban Air Traffic Management (Urban ATM) software solution to support the operation of vertiports and electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.
Eve’s Urban ATM software is an agnostic solution that will enable the integration of all airspace users in the urban environment. This is critical to support the safety, efficiency, and improvement of the entire Urban Air Mobility (UAM) ecosystem, including fleet and vertiport operators. This new collaboration reinforces a shared commitment to safely integrating and scaling global UAM operations.
Ferrovial’s Vertiport division will provide an essential piece of the ecosystem to enable landing, recharging, and taking off with passengers of eVTOL aircraft. These intermodal centers will be integrated into cities and adapted to the surrounding environment. Their innovative design will reduce noise impact, allow zero operating emissions and improve energy efficiency.
Ferrovial Vertiports has already announced that it will develop a network of more than 10 vertiports across state of Florida, USA and a network of 25 vertiports across the United Kingdom. It is currently studying other markets in the United States and around the globe which will benefit from a more sustainable and efficient mode of urban transportation.
