In the United Kingdom, the world's first airport for flying automobiles is opened ...

The world''s first urban airport to enable ''flying taxis'' to take off and land in the busy areas of cities has opened up in the United Kingdom. The World Economic Forum (WEF) said last year that engineering and landing techniques in these urban aerial transportation centers are not as complicated as it may seem. Last year, an eVTOL manufacturer involved in designing these airports to address the infrastructure challenge.

The first pop-up airport at UAP, named Air One, was completed in 15 months, including the airport''s planning and construction.

What can you expect at Air One?

Air-One has been established in Coventry, a city that provided us with the inventor of the jet engine and the Jaguar brand of automobiles. The project is a collaboration between the City Council and Urban Air-Port to demonstrate how urban air mobility can reduce air pollution and congestion on the roads.

Air One, powered by hydrogen fuel cells, is designed to be fully autonomous and integrates with electric vehicles to deliver a zero-emission urban public transport system. It has collaborated with Hyundai''s air mobility arm, Supernal, to develop a full-sized model of their SA-1 air taxi as a demonstration.

One can experience live-flight demonstrations with drones that will also see local police participate in operation scenarios at the airport. According to Air One, its website, passenger taxi processing, command and control center, logistics, transportation infrastructure, and security services.

What''''s in the future?

Air One has an address in Coventry, but only until the 15th of May. After that, it intends to close the airport and then set it up again at other airports in the United Kingdom, bringing the experience closer to people.

Urban Airport intends to operate its urban airports in over 200 locations across the globe, primarily in cities such as London, Los Angeles, Germany, South Korea, and Australia.

We can''t wait for the eVTOL technology to catch up.
