Eve Air Mobility today announced the extension of its partnership with Widerøe Zero, “an innovative initiative” by Widerøe focused on “sustainable aviation with the mission to revolutionise the industry and create a greener future for air travel.”
Eve says the partnership, solidified through a Letter of Intent (LOI), marks a significant step forward in both companies’ commitment to addressing the environmental impact of aviation. The agreement involves up to 50 eVTOLs, a service and operation solutions package, as well as the implementation of Eve’s Urban Air Traffic Management (Urban ATM) software solution.
“This new partnership builds upon a previous MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) signed between Eve and Widerøe Zero in 2021 at the UN Climate Conference (COP26), which aimed to develop eVTOL operations in Scandinavia,” said Andre Stein, Co-CEO of Eve.
Eve says it will provide comprehensive services to meet Widerøe Zero’s needs and specifications. These include eVTOL maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), component repair management, spare parts management programs, battery lifecycle management, and data integration solutions, alongside operations solutions, such as training services, consultancy services, and on-site support for fleet Entry Into Service (EIS).
Additionally, the company says the LOI involves implementing Eve’s Urban ATM software to optimise the efficiency of Widerøe Zero’s UAM flight operations by integrating its eVTOLs with other airspace users in low-level airspace, ensuring optimised performance and safety. Eve’s Urban ATM solution offers tailored solutions, including integration with vertiport automation systems, vertiport resource availability management, flight planning and coordination services, and more.
