Uber Air Service

About Air Service

ÜberAir announced 5 towns where the air taxis service could take place. Uber now wants a third air taxis service in a third town, and it looks international. Feeling like Amazon's quest for a second home, Uber this past weekend Uber posted its short-list of nations the Ride-Hailing application would work with to start its UberAir aerospace venture, a flight-sharing electrical e-VTOL net.

Country announcements were made during the Uber Elevate Asia Pacific Expo in Japan. Japan and the towns of Tokyo and Osaka, India with Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, Australia in Melbourne or Sydney, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Paris, France, where Uber has already heralded an Advanced Technologies Center for the research and development of aviation automobiles, are on the agenda.

About already heralded that Los Angeles and Dallas would be the first U.S. towns to demonstrate its aviation cab system in 2020, with professional aviation services anticipated by 2023. Uber last year made a smooth, cutting-edge movie (above) to get a glimpse of what it might look like. However, first of all, Uber must decide which one of the world' s major metropolises will join the company's ambitions.

Uber presented possible city routes during the Japan exhibition to show what it might look like if a client ordered a shuttle trip from an application. About says his e-VTOLs would take under 20 min to cover about 40 mile ( which is usually almost two hrs with the car).

About also showed possible itineraries in Delhi, Mumbai, Seoul, Sydney and Taipei. About says that it also wants "polycentric" areas (urban areas consisting of several cities) and prefers to work with towns that already work seamlessly with Über on the road. About has a complete listing that goes deeply into his criterions.

Discussions are underway with Uber and other airlines to introduce short-haul and commute flights to the county within the next 10 years. Not a single thing about when UberAir's finals towns will be released, but if it's something like the Amazon quest for a second base, it might take a while.
