In April 2022, Eve and Falcon Aviation Services (Falcon), a business aviation services operator in the Middle East and Africa region, have signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) for up to 35 electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. With deliveries expected to start in 2026, the partnership will introduce the first eVTOL touristic flights from Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai. Eve and Falcon will work together with local stakeholders and authorities to support developing the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) ecosystem for the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Captain Ramandeep Oberoi, Chief Operating Officer of Falcon, said: “We are ecstatic to partner with Eve and be the first operator of eVTOL in Dubai and the MENA region. The launch of this concept fully aligns with the Smart Dubai vision and will contribute to positioning Dubai as a global leader in sustainable Urban Air Mobility transportation. Falcon is actively engaged in Urban Air Mobility emergence and committed to delivering an effective and sustainable new urban transportation mode and providing the community with better and faster solutions. We are particularly proud to take a new step in the UAE, in a project that will be revolutionary for sustainable urban mobility.”
