The future of Urban Air Mobility has taken an important step after Volocopter and Japan Airlines (JAL) signed a collaboration agreement.

The plan is for the two companies to work together to develop a commercial air taxi service in Japan in the coming years.

The new agreement hopes to promote clean and efficient travel solutions for the future.

In-flight taxi services

German company Volocopter has unveiled the latest prototype – electric “air taxi” – at an airport near Paris.

Conceived as a method of transporting the future, its designers say that Volocopter, a driverless taxi that flies, will revolutionize the way we travel in cities.

The plane, known as eVTOL (Electric Vertical Take-off and Landing), was designed to transport people through cities and urban areas. The aircraft runs on nine electric batteries and can carry a pilot and a passenger.

The volocopter will be tested from June 2021 at Pontoise airport, near Cergy, 35 km west of Paris.

If next year’s tests bring conclusive results, the Paris authorities hope to have a prototype ready for demonstration flights in time for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

The electric planes of the German company Volocopter carry 18 rotors and can carry up to two passengers, or the equivalent in goods, over distances of 35 km, with speeds of up to 110 km / h.

Moreover, the aircraft runs on clean energy, and the company hopes to minimize travel time as well as carbon emissions.

It’s no real surprise JAL joins Volocopter, as the Japanese airline has invested in Volocopter since the beginning of this year. The new agreement between the two companies strengthens the collaboration, to promote air mobility solutions in Japanese cities and peripheral areas.

Volocopter planes were seen for the first time in the sky in 2017, when Volocopter launched an autonomous air taxi flight to Dubai.
