Air One ... the world's first electric civilian airport

Hyundai Motor Group, Coventry City Council and the UK government have teamed up with the city airport to launch Air One, the world's first major hub for eVTOL aircraft operations.

Urban Air Port has been chosen as the winner of the UK government's Future Aviation Challenge, which aims to help develop and support the next generation of electric and autonomous flying infrastructure and systems.

The British Airways metropolitan airport is working hard to develop a completely independent emissions-free infrastructure to support air traffic in the future.

Air One is the world's first pop-up airport and cargo hub for eVTOL aircraft for future takeoffs and landings, including cargo drones and air taxis, and will be launched from Coventry later this year.

EVTOL aircraft are expected to be widely used in the future to transport people and cargo between cities. Air One aims to show the potential of urban air travel across the UK and around the world.

The Air One electric hub takes up 60% less physical space than a traditional helipad (currently the most comparable infrastructure), and the device's chassis allows for site stabilization within a few days.

The airport has reduced traffic congestion, reduced air pollution, and helped Britain achieve a carbon-free future.

Urban airport hubs can also be integrated into sustainable electric vehicles and public transportation and run completely off-grid. This means that they don't necessarily need proper network connections, but they can develop potential sites.

The installation contributes to the development of an emissions-free, fully autonomous and innovative infrastructure to enable air traffic of the future.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) predicts that urban aviation in the United States could generate a $ 500 billion industry in the near future.

However, the main obstacle to the growth of this market is the lack of infrastructure, a problem that urban airports are trying to solve.

Hyundai Motor Group is supporting the development of the Air One as part of its plan to market its autonomous aircraft by 2028.

Hyundai plans to build eVTOL aircraft in the future and support a larger urban aviation ecosystem.

The South Korean company hopes to partner with other companies to make an impact on society with safe, affordable and people-centered travel solutions.
