Falcon Aviation Services, a premium charter company located in the United Arab Emirates, has made a significant step ahead in terms of its future urban mobility plans. Falcon recently signed a letter of intent for up to 35 Embraer EVE eVTOL air taxis, according to a statement issued today. Deliveries are expected to begin in four years.
Falcon Aviation isn't the only corporation that has expressed an interest in the EVE. Global Crossing Airlines has bought 200 of these air taxis to promote urban mobility in southern Florida. Falcon, on the other hand, has a somewhat different strategy in mind for deploying the EVE.
The operator's agreement with EVE will enable it to "introduce the first eVTOL touristic flights from the Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai," according to a statement released today. Given Dubai's popularity as a premium tourist destination, the opportunity to observe it from above in an air taxi will undoubtedly be welcomed.
Captain Ramandeep Oberoi, Falcon's Chief Operating Officer, stated that, "We are ecstatic to partner with Eve and be the first operator of eVTOL in Dubai & the MENA region. The launch of this concept fully aligns with the Smart Dubai vision and will contribute to positioning Dubai as a global leader in sustainable Urban Air Mobility transportation."
