Our Bureau - : Mar 17, 2022 - : 1:09 am

Eve, an Embraer company, and Global Crossing Airlines Group, Inc. (GlobalX) have signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) to order up to 200 of Eve’s electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL).

The potential sale is included in Eve’s current order backlog of up to 1,785 eVTOLs. The company expects to start the deliveries in 2026.

The two companies will also explore the development of an ecosystem to scale Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and reinforce the Concept of Operations (CONOPS) in Miami-Dade. GlobalX’s expertise as a flag airline will contribute not only to the formulation of the infrastructure needed to permit eVTOL flights, but also the deployment of Eve’s aircraft throughout their network.

“We are honored to be working with Eve Air Mobility and believe their affiliation with Embraer ensures Eve will be the best positioned eVTOL OEM,” said Ed Wegel, Chair and CEO of GlobalX.. These eVTOLs will enable us to expand our market throughout South Florida, bringing our customers to their flights at MIA and FLL, as well as local flying within Key West and all of the Keys, Naples, and Palm Beach.”

“We are delighted with this partnership with GlobalX, which will maximize our efforts to structure UAM operations,” said Andre Stein, co-CEO of Eve. “Their experience as an airline will contribute to the expansion of Eve’s eVTOL deployment in North America. The partnership also ensures both companies’ commitment to delivering sustainable UAM and providing the community with better and faster solutions.”
