Simple Flying - Gaurav Joshi
Singapore's little know Seletar Airport is hoping to emerge from the shadows as it eyes to become a busy hub for flying taxis in the region. Electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles (eVTOL) have piqued the industry interest lately, with several aerospace companies looking to invest for future operations. And Singapore could be a crucial regional link in the category.
Singapore's Seletar Airport, which is essentially used for serving private jets, and some regional commercial flights, is eyeing to become a regional force in the flying taxi business, if and when such aircraft begin flying.
As pointed out by a Bloomberg report, Singapore has already made agreements with startup companies Skyports Ltd. and Volocopter GmbH, which are looking to convert the airfield into a vertiport for future operations.
