  • Hyundai and Urban Air Port is collaborating to create the world’s first electric flying cars airport.
  • The project is expected to open this November 2021 in England.
  • Air-One aims to “bring clean urban air transport to the masses and unleash a new airborne world of zero emission mobility.”

The United Kingdom is set to make history as it officially announces plans to open the world’s first airport for electric flying cars this year. Located in Coventry, a city in England, the ambitious project called Air-One airport is set to be completed by November.

South Korean auto manufacturer Hyundai is working hand in hand with Urban Air Port to make the pop-up airport a reality. The place is being described as “an innovative hub for future electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft – such as air taxis and autonomous delivery drones,” a Hyundai press release stated.

Flying cars just got real!

Urban Air Port founder and executive chairman Ricky Sandhu said:

“Cars need roads. Trains need rails. Planes need airports. eVTOLs will need Urban Air Ports. Over a hundred years ago, the world’s first commercial flight took off, creating the modern connected world. Urban Air Port will improve connectivity across our cities, boost productivity and help the UK to take the lead in a whole new clean global economy.

“Flying cars used to be a futuristic flight of fancy. Air-One will bring clean urban air transport to the masses and unleash a new airborne world of zero emission mobility.”

According to reports, the project has been given a £1.2 million grant by the UK Research and Innovation’s Future Flight Challenge.

The Hyundai website also tells us that Urban Air Port “will reduce congestion, cut air pollution and help achieve a zero carbon future. It can be integrated with electric vehicles and sustainable public transport.”

And this is just the beginning…

As the company shared, the goal is to “install more than 200 zero emission sites worldwide over the next five years.”
