Flying taxis will soon be taking to the air above Sydney after Embraer’s Eve Urban Air Mobility Solutions signed an agreement with Sydney Seaplanes.
Eve’s electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft, or eVTOL, are scheduled to begin flights in the Australian city in 2026, with a total of 50 aircrafts earmarked to be in service.
“This is an exciting development for Sydney Seaplanes,” the company’s CEO Aaron Shaw said.
“Sydney needs a post-COVID lift and what better way to do that than by developing high-tech and zero-carbon jobs that support transport, tourism, and the vibrancy of this wonderful city,” he added.
Shaw declared that the company will operate some flights from Rose Bay aviation terminal in Sydney Harbor, subject to community consultation.
