Falcon Aviation Services will introduce Eve in Dubai
Guests at Dubai's Atlantis resort on The Palm could be taking eVTOL tourist flights from 2026. Falcon Aviation Services will be the first to operate Eve aircraft in the UAE region.
Falcon Aviation Services plans to introduce Eve eVTOL flights in Dubai.

Middle East and Africa-based operator Falcon Aviation Services signed a letter of intent (LoI) in April for up to 35 Eve eVTOL aircraft. With deliveries expected to start in 2026, the partnership will introduce the first eVTOL tourist flights from Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai. Both companies will work together with local stakeholders and authorities to support the development of a UAM ecosystem for the United Arab Emirates.

Falcon COO Captain Ramandeep Oberoi says: “We are ecstatic to partner with Eve and be the first operator of eVTOL in Dubai and the MENA region. The launch of this concept fully aligns with the Smart Dubai vision and will contribute to positioning Dubai as a global leader in sustainable urban air mobility transportation. Falcon is actively engaged in urban air mobility emergence and is committed to delivering an effective and sustainable new urban transportation mode and providing the community with better and faster solutions. We are particularly proud to take a new step in the UAE, in a project that will be revolutionary for sustainable urban mobility.”

“We are thrilled about partnering with Falcon and having the immense opportunity to enable the future urban mobility in the United Arab Emirates and launch eVTOL flights in Dubai. This is a massive challenge for both companies, which will help to position Dubai as a leader in the urban air mobility market. Eve's global experience, which spans different regions across the globe, will surely benefit the achievement of this project,” adds Eve co-CEO Andre Stein.

This collaboration reinforces Eve's commitment and efforts to safely enable the global UAM ecosystem by providing an agnostic and holistic portfolio of solutions.
