Nautilus develops UAM operations in Australia
By 2026, tourists should be able to fly over the Great Barrier Reef in non-polluting aircraft. Nautilus has ordered 10 Eve eVTOLs that will gradually form the backbone of its Australian sight-seeing operations.
Nautilus Aviation hopes to commence eVTOL sightseeing operations over the Great Barrier Reef by 2026.

Australian helicopter operator Nautilus Aviation, a division of Morris Group, has partnered with Eve Urban Air Mobility Solutions to focus on accelerating the development of the UAM ecosystem in Australia. As part of the agreement, Nautilus has ordered 10 of Eve's eVTOL aircraft, with flights set to take off over some of Queensland's most iconic tourist attractions by 2026. Morris Group founder and CEO Chris Morris says the new partnership accelerates the progress towards 100 per cent of scenic flights over the Great Barrier Reef coming from zero emission electric aviation and is in line with his company's commitment to reach net-zero emission by 2030 across all of its businesses.

Nautilus has had an Advanced Ecotourism Certification for eight years, however it has been hard to avoid the biggest impact of greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of fuel in the company's helicopters. "This will allow us to provide emission-free and quiet tours over the Great Barrier Reef, providing an unmatched eco experience to our customers," says Nautilus CEO Aaron Finn.

"Our partnership with Nautilus Aviation and Morris Group will see Eve aircraft serving Australia's iconic tourism attractions with sustainable, zero emissions low-noise journeys," adds Eve president and CEO Andre Stein. "We share the same vision toward a carbon neutral future for air mobility, and this is a great use case for the solutions Eve is bringing to the market; these include our all-electric eVTOL and our comprehensive customer support and air traffic management solutions."
