With deliveries anticipated to commence in 2026, Embraer offshoot Eve and Global Crossing Airlines (GlobalX) have signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) for the purchase of up to 200 eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) aircraft. In addition, the two companies will explore the development of an ecosystem to scale Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and to reinforce the Concept of Operations (CONOPS) in Miami-Dade.
GlobalX’s expertise as a flag airline will contribute not only to the formulation of the infrastructure needed to permit eVTOL flights, but also the deployment of Eve’s aircraft throughout its network. GlobalX is a US 121 domestic flag and supplemental airline flying the Airbus A320 family aircraft. GlobalX flies as a passenger ACMI and charter airline serving the US, Caribbean and Latin American markets.
Backed by Embraer’s more than 50-year history of aerospace expertise and with a singular focus, Eve is taking a holistic approach to progressing the UAM ecosystem, with an advanced eVTOL project, a comprehensive global services and support network and a unique air traffic management solution.
“We are honoured to be working with Eve Air Mobility and believe their affiliation with Embraer ensures Eve will be the best positioned eVTOL OEM. These eVTOLs will enable us to expand our market throughout south Florida, bringing our customers to their flights at MIA and FLL, as well as local flying within Key West and all of the Keys, Naples, and Palm Beach.” said Ed Wegel, Chair and CEO of GlobalX.
