Eve Air Mobility and Bluenest by Globalvia have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to develop vertiport infrastructure using Eve’s Urban Air Traffic Management (UATM) software solution in support of future Vertiport Automation Systems.
As part of the agreement, the companies will jointly study the use of the software for Urban Air Mobility (UAM) operations by developing an operational model in specific regions and missions according to Bluenest’s needs.
“We firmly believe collaboration is the best way to make the future air mobility a reality”, said Gema Ferrero, Managing Director of Bluenest by Globalvia. “Therefore, through this strategic collaboration, Eve and Bluenest will be able to better manage vertiport urban air mobility operations and related infrastructure, thus bonding sky and ground between the two companies.”
Andre Stein, Co-CEO of Eve, added: “Collaborating with Bluenest by Globalvia will further increase industry knowledge and perception of Eve as a strong provider of UATM solutions and continue to foster our understanding of vertiport operations. Our software will support the integrated operation of UAM aircraft, optimising operational performance and safety, as well as preparing for both scale and eventual integration of uncrewed vehicles.”
Eve’s UATM software is an agnostic solution aiming to maximize vertiports’ efficiency and ensure high resource utilization as well as safe, effective air traffic management.
According to Eve, the expansion of its UATM customer base demonstrates its commitment to safe and successful vertiport operations and the full ecosystem necessary for a robust UAM market.
