Eve Urban Air Mobility Solutions, the Embraer UAM spinoff, and Helipass, a French helicopter and jet booking platform, are entering into a new collaboration to accelerate and deploy eVTOL aircraft across France and Europe. The partnership aims to fly Eve's electric aircraft for a total of 50,000 flight hours per year. This could lead to an optional increase of 100,000 annual flight hours across Helipass' network.

Helipass plans to open digital bookings on its platform to offer an innovative and seamless user experience to customers throughout its network. To support the expansion of this partnership, Eve will work with Helipass to develop training, on-site support and technical publications to facilitate the launch of electrical vertical aircraft (EVA) commercial operations.

Following the commercial introduction of the EVA, which is planned for 2026, both companies will endeavour to launch Eve's EVA aircraft across Helipass markets. These flights will include sightseeing, city and airport transfers, as well as a growing on-demand service.

“We are very happy about bringing Helipass to our family of partners, increasing the global reach of our solutions to the UAM market. Europe is not only ripe for new mobility solutions, but also very focused on ensuring a more sustainable future, which is very much in line with Eve's vision,” says Andre Stein, president and CEO of Eve.

“This is a great step for electric air mobility,” adds Helipass CEO Frederic Aguettant. “We are very proud to open the way and democratise the air with Eve. This new aircraft will transform our sightseeing activity with less noise and zero-emission on all our destinations for sustainable flights. The airport transfer activity will also become sustainable and open to everybody as a real mobility solution. Helipass, the air mobility platform with 600 destinations and 120 helicopter operators is opening the way for a better future.”

Both parties will look into growing the service beyond this agreement to include additional use cases, as well as the requisite services needed to support the scalability of UAM products in Helipass' core markets.
