Archer and Falcon Aviation to jointly develop vertiport network in Dubai and Abu Dhabi for launch of eVTOL flights by 2025

Archer Aviation announced today that Falcon Aviation, an aviation services operator in the UAE, has been selected as their vertiport infrastructure partner for critical locations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.  The company says this collaboration marks a significant step towards launching Archer’s Midnight flying car with Falcon Aviation in the UAE and across the MENA region as soon as 2025.

“Under this partnership, Archer and Falcon Aviation will start by developing state-of-the-art vertiport infrastructure at Falcon Heliport at Atlantis, the Palm in Dubai and the Marina Mall heliport in Abu Dhabi’s Corniche” according to the press release. “Driving between the two cities during peak traffic can take more than 2 hours. Archer and Falcon Aviation plan to offer passenger service in Archer’s Midnight flying car between these two Falcon vertiports, which will operate almost entirely over water with scenic views of both cities and clock in at as little as 30 minutes from takeoff to landing. Archer believes it is the first to announce a flying car service on this route between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, one of the world’s most prominent and congested commute corridors.

“On March 8th, Falcon Aviation also announced the inauguration of its state-of-the-art Renovated Heliport Terminal, extending its presence at Atlantis, the Palm. The companies unveiled a vision of what the future vertiport and service will look like at what will transform into a key hub for Midnight flights, helping bring urban air mobility to the region.

“Today’s announcement reinforces the memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed last year, where Falcon Aviation agreed to operate scores of Archer’s Midnight flying cars. This venture is part of Archer’s strategic expansion, with the UAE set to be its first international launch market as soon as next year. This follows a significant preliminary deal announced by Archer last year with the Abu Dhabi Investment Office which promised economic incentives to help accelerate Archer’s growth in the region as part of Abu Dhabi’s Smart and Autonomous Vehicle Industry (SAVI) Cluster.”
