“…Aeroporti di Roma, Aeroporto di Venezia, Aeroports de la Cote d’Azur and Aeroporto Guglielmo Marconi di Bologna together for the building and management of vertiports
Urban Blue, a project focused on sustainable mobility set up by Aeroporti di Roma, Aeroporto di Venezia, Aeroports de la Cote d’Azur and Aeroporto Guglielmo Marconi di Bologna has been launched, for the development of urban air mobility infrastructures at the international level.
The company, which will be open to new industrial, technological and financial partners for the progressive expansion of UAM in various geographic areas, in addition to Italy and France, will be concerned with studying, designing, building and managing the infrastructures – also known as vertiports – essential to allow electric vertical take-off aircraft (e-VTOL) to connect airports with built-up areas and promote intra-city mobility, promoting the decongestion of traffic in urban centres.
UAM is one of the most promising forms of innovative and sustainable mobility for the coming years.
The potential of this sector is growing strongly, with a market value for Europe estimated in more than 4,0 billion of euros by 2030. The growing public acceptance of this technology, the technological advances and ongoing regulatory changes are increasing the interest of investors in the sector…”
