EvFly signs up infrastructure provider
EvFly has selected Volatus to become the exclusive provider of tools, infrastructure and charging stations for its eVTOL services.
Together, EvFly and Volatus Infrastructure will continue building the foundation of the AAM industry in Asia.

Singapore-headquartered eVTOL aircraft operator EvFly has signed a letter of intent that names Volatus as the exclusive eVTOL infrastructure and charging station provider for its global AAM projects.

“We are very excited and delighted to work together with Volatus,” says EvFly founder and CEO Yannick Erbs. “Its knowledge and expertise in the AAM industry reinforce our belief that we are making the best choice as its main objective is to provide the best tailor-made tools and infrastructure while incorporating the latest technologies for electric charging stations and app support.”

EvFly was founded with a clear objective in mind: to make the aviation industry evolve. Like the automotive industry, the aviation sector must constantly renew itself to meet the demands and expectations of tomorrow. This means moving towards a more flexible, safer, more cost-effective and more environmentally friendly approach to aviation. EvFly is ready to participate in the transformation of the aviation industry and to revolutionise AAM with the development of eVTOL services.

Founded in 2021, Volatus Infrastructure is connecting communities to the future with best-in-class eVTOL infrastructure technology. It offers three main eVTOL infrastructure designs, a vehicle agnostic charging station, plus an app and maintenance programmes.

“Volatus is excited to work with EvFly to help continue building the foundation of the AAM industry and bring eVTOL to more corners of the globe,” says co-founder Grant Fisk. “Collaboration is the key to success. We all bring an essential key element to the industry and need to work together to bring success forward.”

In March 2023, EvFly purchased 205 Prosperity I and Prosperity Cargo aircraft from AutoFlight for deployment initially in the Middle East and later Asia and Africa. In September 2022 it paid deposits for three Axe eVTOL aircraft from Skyfly, with delivery expected in 2024, for operations in Thailand. And in August 2022 the company revealed an intention to purchase a number of Atea aircraft from Ascendance to serve the Thailand market for short and medium haul operations.
