Airbus Urban Mobility GmbH was founded in May 2018 in order to take our exploration into cutting-edge commercial urban air mobility solutions and services to the next level. We are exploring how recent technology advancements provide mobility solutions and services – from battery capacity and autonomy to electric propulsion – that can help drive the development of new kinds of aerial vehicles (eVTOLs). Airbus Urban Mobility focuses on better connecting people by bringing the safety, convenience and joy of flight to city inhabitants. To make this a reality, we’re architecting all pieces of the urban air mobility domain. Our approach includes building and bringing together all the relevant components—technology, business models, city integration, infrastructure development, and airspace management – to take urban transport into the sky. In doing so, we can ensure maximum societal benefits for urban communities worldwide.
