Eve Air Mobility, Yugo to Explore Urban Air Operations in SE Asia

Our Bureau - : Feb 19, 2024 - : 12:01 pm

Eve Air Mobility (Eve) and Yugo Global Industries Pte. Ltd. (Yugo) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in Singapore on Monday (Feb. 19) to explore Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and eVTOL flights in Southeast Asia. Both companies will collaborate to assess infrastructure needs, regulations, and operational aspects for eVTOL operations in the region.

We are looking forward to collaboratively working with Yugo to study and help define the UAM ecosystem in Singapore and Southeast Asia,” said Johann Bordais, CEO of Eve Air Mobility. “Our goal is to also understand and define a business model that not only enables eVTOL flights in the region but also advances the overall mobility ecosystem.”

“These types of collaborations and agreements are a critical first step toward pursuing eVTOL flights. We are looking forward to working with Yugo and other key stakeholders as we begin this project,” he added.

“We strongly believe that Southeast Asian economies will greatly contribute to the development of the eVTOL and UAM industry,” said Thierry Tea, Chairman of Yugo. “Our collaboration with Eve will offer valuable insights into the essential requirements for regional air mobility development.”

Eve’s commitment to UAM in the Asia Pacific region aligns with ongoing developments in aviation infrastructure across Southeast Asia, including new airports in the Philippines and Cambodia exploring opportunities for flying taxis and electric jets.

Singapore’s UAM deployment serves as a model for regional ecosystem development, with partnerships like OCIC Group’s collaboration with Changi Airport and Singapore Airline Engineering. Yugo’s network includes operators like PhilJets in the Philippines and Helistar in Cambodia, supporting regional eVTOL innovation.

Eve is progressing with the development of its eVTOL aircraft, scheduled for testing in 2024 and entering service in 2026. Alongside aircraft development, Eve plans to provide customers with access to a global network of service centers and various solutions to support operational needs.
