Eve teams with Ferrovial to explore UAM traffic management
The two companies will jointly deveop the safe and reliable operation of vertiports and eVTOLs; an agnostic solution that will enable the integration of all airspace users in the urban environment.
The siting, development and operation of these networks will support all-electric, zero-carbon eVTOL air transport services.

Eve Air Mobility has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Ferrovial Vertiports, a subsidiary of leading global infrastructure operator Ferrovial, to explore the use of Eve's urban air traffic management (Urban ATM) software solution to support the safe and reliable operation of vertiports and eVTOL aircraft.

Ferrovial Vertiports focuses on the development of vertiport networks for the take off, landing, operation and maintenance of passenger services of eVTOL aircraft.

“This agreement represents a significant step forward and is a strong validation of Eve's Urban ATM service offering,” says co-CEO Andre Stein. “Eve is more than an eVTOL manufacturer, and we are working with companies like Ferrovial Vertiports to provide them with solutions that will allow these aircraft to operate safely and efficiently.”

“As a leading global infrastructure provider and operator for over 70 years, Ferrovial is committed to building and operating safe, efficient and sustainable transportation infrastructure, which is why we are truly excited to announce our collaboration with Eve. Our goal is to build a series of agnostic vertiport networks across the United States and Europe, and ensuring that we are utilising an agnostic urban air traffic management system will be key to achieving our ambitions,” adds CEO Kevin Cox.

Eve's Urban ATM software is an agnostic solution that will enable the integration of all airspace users in the urban environment. This is critical to support the safety, efficiency and improvement of the entire urban air mobility (UAM) ecosystem, including fleet and vertiport operators. This new collaboration reinforces a shared commitment to safely integrating and scaling global UAM operations.

Ferrovial's Vertiport division will provide an essential piece of the ecosystem to enable landing, recharging and taking off with passengers of eVTOL aircraft. These intermodal centres will be integrated into cities and adapted to the surrounding environment. Their innovative design will reduce noise impact, allow zero operating emissions and improve energy efficiency.

Ferrovial Vertiports has already announced that it will develop a network of more than 10 vertiports across state of Florida, US and a network of 25 vertiports across the UK. It is currently studying other markets in the US and around the globe that will benefit from a more sustainable and efficient mode of urban transportation.
