The foundation of the project with be a pooling of the two company’s expertise to assess the market readiness of surface infrastructure for eVTOL operations. This will include an examination of operations at airports as well as studies of the regulatory environment.

“The next five years will probably be decisive in how we move from and through cities, and aviation will play a leading role again. Corporación América Airports has always been at the forefront of air transport services and now wants to be a key player in the UAM segment, identifying the challenges and opportunities for better operational, infrastructural and secure contexts. We want to lead the development of the UAM ecosystem, allowing mobility in the third dimension accessible to all, in a more sustainable transportation mode”, said Martin Eurnekian, CEO of Corporación América Airports.

Meanwhile, Andre Stein, co-CEO of Eve noted “The Urban Air Mobility ecosystem includes ground infrastructures and operations, airports, and integration of different transportation modes. The partnership with Corporación América Airports will allow us to create and implement these concepts, in line with regulatory authorities’ requirements, in different communities in Latin America and Europe supported by Corporación América Airports. Our dedication to enabling a global UAM ecosystem makes Eve a trusted partner in this collaboration”.
