Sydney Seaplanes boosts Eve with order for fifty
The skies above Sydney will soon see fewer emissions from local flights. From 2026, Sydney Seaplanes will be using at least 50 Eve eVTOL aircraft to fly tourists and commuters throughout the region.

Australia-based tourism flight operator Sydney Seaplanes has placed an order for 50 of Eve Urban Air Mobility Solution's eVTOL aircraft, with progressive deliveries expected to commence from 2026. Following the Nautilus order for 10 of the aircraft earlier this month, this new transaction accelerates the progress towards 100 per cent of greater Sydney's local tourism and commuter flights coming from zero emission electric aviation.

"This is an exciting development for Sydney Seaplanes. Sydney needs a post-COVID lift and what better way to do that than by developing high-tech and zero carbon jobs that support transport, tourism and the vibrancy of this wonderful city," says CEO Aaron Shaw. "Eve's eVTOL technology will integrate seamlessly with our electric amphibious fleet to deliver a range of tourism and commuter journeys. Subject to community consultation, we expect some flights will operate from our iconic Rose Bay aviation terminal in Sydney Harbour. This service will have widespread appeal, which will allow us to open new routes beyond the harbour and throughout the greater Sydney region."

"We are pleased to support Sydney Seaplanes as it seeks to bring new mobility solutions to Sydney," adds Eve president and CEO Andre Stein. "The greater Sydney market offers significant potential for scaled urban air mobility operations, to make the most of the iconic beauty of Sydney Harbour and to improve the efficiency of movement to complement existing transport modes. Eve will support this new partnership with comprehensive solutions for aircraft operations including air traffic management solutions, maintenance, training and other services."
