JAL plans to launch flying car business in fiscal 2025

Japan Airlines (JAL) plans to launch its flying car business in fiscal 2025. The airline will offer services for transporting passengers between airports and tourist destinations. According to the company’s idea, it will be a business similar to a car taxi.

JAL plans to use the aircraft of the German company Volocopter, in which the Japanese airline invested in 2020. It is a two-seat electric unmanned aerial vehicle with vertical takeoff and landing. It can fly at speeds up to 110 km / h. The flight range is 35 km.

Recently, a cooperation agreement was signed with Mie Prefecture, where it is planned to conduct trials and begin commercial provision of the service.

It is noteworthy that JAL is not going to be limited to the provision of passenger transportation services. The company expects to organize training for operators and provide related services to other companies.

A prerequisite for the development of flying cars as a mode of transport is the availability of appropriate permits from the state. In particular, Mie Prefecture was chosen for the reason that flights in a special zone are allowed there. However, for flights to other prefectures, a decision at the state level is necessary. The development of relevant regulations has already begun. They are expected to come into force by 2025.
