In December 2021, a subsidiary of Eve Holding and airport operator Corporación América Airports signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to design and integrate a service and support ecosystem for urban air mobility (UAM) operations in Europe and Latin America. Eve and Corporación América Airports will combine their expertise and efforts to assess the market readiness of ground infrastructure for eVTOL operations at airports, including studies of the regulatory environment.

Currently, Corporación América Airports operates 53 airports in six countries across Latin America and Europe, comprising Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Ecuador, Armenia and Italy.

“The next five years will probably be decisive in how we move from and through cities, and aviation will play a leading role again. Corporación América Airports has always been at the forefront of air transport services and now wants to be a key player in the UAM segment, identifying the challenges and opportunities for better operational, infrastructural and secure contexts. We want to lead the development of the UAM ecosystem, allowing mobility in the third dimension accessible to all, in a more sustainable transportation mode,” says CEO Martin Eurnekian.

“The urban air mobility ecosystem includes ground infrastructures and operations, airports and integration of different transportation modes. The partnership will allow us to create and implement these concepts, in line with regulatory authorities' requirements, in different communities in Latin America and Europe supported by Corporación América Airports. Our dedication to enabling a global UAM ecosystem makes Eve a trusted partner in this collaboration,” adds Eve co-CEO Andre Stein.

In June this year, Corporación América Airports committed its AAM R&D team to exploring vertiport design and infrastructure in Brazil with VX4 designer Vertical, transport operator Grupo Comporte and lease company Avolon. The company has already developed its own conceptual vertiport design and progressed AAM traffic analysis across several countries.

This partnership reinforces both companies' commitment to safely providing more reliable, affordable, sustainable, integrated and human-centric UAM solutions.
