Eve and FlyBIS set sights on Latin American AAM
Brazil and other South American countries have many high-traffic tourist areas that will benefit from eVTOL mobility. Together Eve and FlyBIS plan to develop operations.
The Letter of Intent includes the purchase of up to 40 eVTOL aircraft.

Eve Air Mobility has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Caxias do Sul, south Brazil-based AAM start up FlyBIS Aviation to collaborate on the development of eVTOL operations in Brazil and South America. FlyBIS will also purchase up to 40 of Eve's eVTOL vehicles.

“This new collaboration with FlyBIS will enable us to expand the future of air mobility to southern areas of Brazil and other South American countries,” says Eve co-CEO Andre Stein. “This region has several high-traffic tourist areas that will benefit from eVTOL operations, reinforcing our commitment to fostering the urban air mobility market in different regions around the world.”

FlyBIS has become a promising option for air mobility in south Brazil in the short term and is set to help change and improve the way future generations will move. After starting operations in Brazil's southern states, FlyBIS plans to expand operations to neighbouring countries and contribute to the implementation and development of Eve's air mobility ecosystem. FlyBIS is backed by Brazilian fractional operator Brave Aviacao whose current fleet includes Embraer Phenom 100s and other aircraft.

“We have a strong team in FlyBIS working together with Eve's outstanding workforce and second-to-none resources to develop and implement this project in the most financially efficient and sustainable way,” says co-founder and CEO Gustavo Zanettini. “Our team is very motivated and confident, and we will be working to change future generations' urban air mobility to a more accessible and cleaner experience.”

FlyBIS' vehicles are included in Eve's order backlog of up to 2,770 eVTOL aircraft.
