Volocopter Commits to Launch Air Taxi Services in Singapore

Volocopter, the pioneer in Urban Air Mobility (UAM), announced its commitment today to launch air taxi services in Singapore after two years of close collaboration with the city.

Our successful cooperation with EDB, MOT, and CAAS on our previous flight has shown that there is no better place in Asia to launch our electric air taxi services than in Singapore," says Florian Reuter, CEO of Volocopter.
