Airbus, Avincis Collaborate on AAM Development

Our Bureau - : Jun 5, 2024 - : 10:09 pm

Airbus and Avincis have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to jointly explore opportunities in Advanced Air Mobility (AAM). Their focus will be on electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft operations across Europe.

The agreement aims to define eVTOL operations in Europe and beyond, emphasising mission profiles and operational concepts. This collaboration represents a significant step toward creating an AAM ecosystem and builds upon the long standing relationship between Airbus and Avincis.

“Our partnership with Airbus is an important milestone for Avincis, as we look to the future of emergency air services and the platforms that will support our missions for generations to come. eVTOLs will play an important role in our long-term fleet strategy as these technologies continue to evolve to give us further reach and capability in the field,” said John Boag, CEO of Avincis.

“Airbus is at the cutting-edge of this evolution, and we are excited to be working with their team in understanding how we can harness the latest technology to bring more sustainable solutions to emergency services globally.”

We’re pleased to partner with Avincis. Their established operational network, which is essential to enabling key missions such as emergency medical services, search and rescue, and fire-fighting, will be a valuable tool to collectively explore the mission potential of CityAirbus NextGen,” said Balkiz Sarihan, Head of Urban Air Mobility at Airbus.

“Through this collaboration we will explore how eVTOLs can contribute to missions that save lives and protect communities, a shared goal among our two companies.”

Avincis currently operates around 60 Airbus aircraft, supporting safe and reliable operations across Europe, Africa, and South America. The fully electric CityAirbus NextGen prototype, unveiled in March 2024, is undergoing testing in Germany before its inaugural flight later this year.

Avincis, an Aerial Emergency Services company, employs over 2,400 professionals and maintains bases in several countries, including Spain, Portugal, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Mozambique, and Chile.
