Eve Urban Air Mobility Solutions and Ascent have announced a partnership aimed at bolstering the development of the urban air mobility ecosystem in Asia-Pacific markets.
The partnership is expected to support the integration of Eve’s electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft into Ascent’s technology platform, enabling the delivery of air taxi, cargo and air medical services in the region.
Eve's urban air traffic management services are also set to be fully integrated into Ascent technology, supporting secure and scalable operations.
“This partnership with Eve is a leap forward for Ascent toward achieving our ambition to democratise sustainable urban air mobility,” Lionel Sinai-Sinelnikoff, founder and CEO of Ascent, said.
“Joining forces with Eve, and by extension counting with the active support from the Embraer Group, will enable us to accelerate our development for a larger impact, secure the entry of market-fit all-electric aircraft, and provide safe and secure operations at scale thanks to urban air traffic management integration.”
Andre Stein, president and CEO of Eve Urban Air Mobility, said the partnership aligns with the company’s broader strategy to expand its footprint through industry collaboration.
“Armed with Ascent’s data and platform, we will be well positioned to enter into the Asia-Pacific market,” he added.
“On our end, we are committed to supporting Ascent’s growth and its ambition to democratise air mobility.”
The companies are now expected to develop a proof of concept to demonstrate the extent of Ascent’s platform and market penetration.
