AirX inks deal for up to fifty eVTOLs
Eve Air Mobility and AirX Inc. have signed a letter of intent for up to 50 eVTOLs, service support and urban ATM software.
AirX is not only purchasing Eve's eVTOL aircraft but its services and operations solutions and its Vector urban ATM software.

Japan-based helicopter charter service AirX has signed a letter of intent with Eve Air Mobility for up to 10 firm and up to 40 optional eVTOL aircraft.

"We appreciate AirX's trust and confidence in Eve by not only purchasing our eVTOL aircraft, but our services and operations solutions and our Vector urban air traffic management software," says CEO Johann Bordais. "Japan has been progressive in its approach and interest in eVTOL operations and we look forward to continuing to expand our relationships and as we support the country's urban air mobility objectives going forward."

"We are deeply impressed not only by Eve's technological capabilities, but also by its commitment to building an ecosystem," says AirX CEO Kiwamu Tezuka. "Our aim is to revolutionise the current industry, making transport services useful and affordable for everyone. By integrating our knowledge, experiences and existing business platform with Eve's comprehensive solutions, we hope to overcome transportation limitations by advancing eVTOL operations in Japan."

AirX is a pioneer of advanced air mobility in Japan and a digital platform company offering a total solution of charter services to the public via AIROS Skyview. Just last month it announced the launch of the Greater Tokyo Area's first eVTOL test field, the UAM Centre.

The Asia-Pacific region is an important market for Eve Air Mobility. The company continues to build diverse relationships and work with customers and potential customers to bring a new mode of transportation to help ease traffic congestion in the region. In addition to Japan, Eve is already working closely with customers and operators in Australia, India and South Korea. As the company works with local partners, its goal is to collaboratively build UAM ecosystems with its operating partners in each of the intended launch communities and is sharing information insights as discussions continue.
