Hyundai announces air taxi network in Seoul



Hyundai Motor has announced that the company has partnered with the capital of South Korea, Seoul. The company will create an “urban air mobility ecosystem” or air taxi network. The new transportation system will be commercialized by 2028.

The automaker says the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) ecosystem will begin with a concept of air taxi landing stations called Vertiport. The head of the company announced that Hyundai Motor has 37 manufacturing plants in 10 countries. He also spoke about the development of technologies in the field of electric and hydrogen fuels.

In 2019, the South Korean giant hired Dr. Shin Jai-won, who previously worked at NASA in the United States. The company also plans to open a branch in Washington, DC, which will deal with air taxis.

The company has previously been in talks with Los Angeles officials about the Urban Air Mobility ecosystem and is set to showcase a Vertiport prototype in the UK later this year. As for Seoul, it will be possible to take an air taxi from Gimpo International Airport and fly up to 70 km.

Hyundai is committed to offering a safe, quiet, economical and consumer-oriented air taxi service.
