Future Travel Experience

A new company focused on sustainable mobility has been set up by Aeroporti di Roma, Aeroporto di Venezia, Aeroports de la Cote d’Azur and Aeroporto Guglielmo Marconi di Bologna. The new venture, called Urban Blue, has been launched with the aim to accelerate the development of urban air mobility infrastructures internationally.

It will oversee the design, construction, and management of eVTOL infrastructure, also known as vertiports, which will be essential to allowing eVTOLs to connect airports with built-up areas and promote intra-city mobility.

The company will rely on the existing partnership with Volocopter, and will remain open to new industrial, technology, and financial partners wanting to participate in expanding the programme across the world.

Furthermore, EDF Invest, shareholder of Aeroports de la Cote d’Azur, will support Urban Blue as an international player of reference in the innovative and sustainable mobility segment.

The start of operations in Rome, Nice and Venice is currently planned for 2024, with plans to extend the project in other countries of interest.
