Eve Urban Air Mobility Solutions, Inc. (Eve) and Ascent today announced a partnership focused on accelerating the development of the Urban Air Mobility ecosystem in Asia-Pacific markets.
The partnership will advance the entry of Eve’s electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicle (eVTOL) aircraft into Ascent’s growing technology platform that allows users to book charter flights as well as flights by the seat and orchestrate UAM operations seamlessly.
The partnership aims at enabling the progressive entry of Eve’s eVTOLs throughout the region dedicated to air taxi, cargo and air medical services.
“This partnership with Eve is a leap forward for Ascent toward achieving our ambition to democratize sustainable urban air mobility,” said Lionel Sinai-Sinelnikoff, Founder & CEO of Ascent.
“Joining forces with Eve, and by extension counting with the active support from the Embraer Group, will enable us to accelerate our development for a larger impact, secure the entry of market-fit all-electric aircraft, and provide safe and secure operations at scale thanks to urban air traffic management integration”.
“We are pleased to announce this partnership with Ascent as it aligns with our strategy to develop the urban air mobility ecosystem through collaborative efforts and to be a truly global player,” said Andre Stein, President & CEO of Eve Urban Air Mobility.
“Armed with Ascent’s data and platform, we will be well positioned to enter into the Asia Pacific market. On our end, we are committed to supporting Ascent’s growth and its ambition to democratize air mobility,”
With the new partnership, the companies will establish a proof of concept to demonstrate the extent of Ascent’s platform and market penetration while offering increased accessibility to a broader segment of the Asia Pacific region.
