Imagine being dropped off at your office by a flying taxi while you wait at a station. Sounds enchanted, no? Well, recent pronouncements from UAE leadership indicate that by 2026, Dubai residents might have this option.
Flying Taxis Will be Available in Dubai by 2026
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, vice president of the UAE, authorised the layout and locations of the air taxi stations in Dubai while he was at the World Government Summit.
In a recent tweet, the vice president of the UAE stated that Dubai would see the introduction of air taxis after three years. “We authorised today the design of the new air taxi stations in Dubai, which will begin functioning within three years, from the World Government Summit,” he wrote.
UAE will need to construct specialised “vertiports,” which are essentially pieces of infrastructure that make it easier for electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircrafts to fly and land.
These air taxis are intended to connect Dubai’s four most important areas while flying through the rest of the city. This encompasses Downtown Dubai, the Palm Jumeirah, the Dubai Marina, and the Dubai International Airport.
These air taxis, which hold 4 passengers plus a pilot, will soar through the air at a blistering speed of almost 300 km/h. I suppose residents of Dubai won’t have a reason to be late.
People had the chance to virtually experience flying taxis during its unveiling at the World Government Summit, giving them a taste of what the future holds.
The Dubai government is aiming to ensure the success of the Air Taxi project. To create a seamless network of air taxis by 2026, Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is actively collaborating with Skysports Infrastructure and Joby Aviation.
