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.

This puts Singapore in pole position to launch Urban Air Mobility in Asia.

Before launching the services in Singapore, Volocopter will obtain the necessary regulatory approvals, including those from CAAS and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency.

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.
