As part of a one of a kind project, the first flying taxis will be utilized during the 2024 Olympic Games in France and will be used to drive passengers around. This project is supervised by the Paris Transportation Network and the general manager of France for Commercial Air.
Few months prior to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, a series of test will commence and will examine the service. If the tests prove successful, this will allow airlines to develop a similar service during 2028-2030, according to a report by Maariv news.
Many industrial companies and experts on the aerial field are involved with the air taxi project, some of whom is Airbus the airplane manufacturer, Safran, EHang the Chinese helicopter manufacturer – a company which itself develops air taxis powered by electricity.
This project began during 2019 with soring support, even prior to any initial testing. Since then, the Pontoise airport located in the Île-de-France region has been chosen as the real time test site for the futuristic air taxi project. “We shall build here the first European airport for flying cars,” said Augustin de Romanet, chief executive officer of Groupe ADP, during the opening event of the project.
