Air taxi may seem very far away, but according to the latest news, Singapore's first air taxi service is expected to start in mid-2024.

Reinhardt, chief risk and certification officer at German aircraft maker Volocopter, expects the air taxi VoloCity to receive safety certification from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency in early 2024.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency have working arrangements to allow VoloCity to achieve simultaneous certification in both locations.

According to the preliminary flight route, the air taxi VoloCity will take off and land from Marina South, and will cross the Marina Bay Spiral Bridge and East Coast Parkway on the way.

Landmarks that can be seen include Marina Bay Sands, Marina Bay Embankment and Sports City. The route has entered the final approval stage.

Volocopter’s chief commercial officer, Ball, revealed that the company’s proposed air taxi route is about 12 kilometers long, takes about 15 minutes, and will fly at an altitude of 100 to 150 meters.

He also said that the Singapore office currently employs a dozen staff, and by 2030, the number of employees will increase to about 500.

The company will expand recruitment by the end of 2023 at the latest, ensuring that it will be ready to roll out services by mid-2024.
