PLANA to supply 30 AAM aircraft to Hi-Air under LOI

PLANA, a developer of hybrid advanced air mobility (AAM) eVTOL aircraft, today announced that it has signed a LOI and MOU with Hi-Air, a South Korean commercial air carrier, to supply 30 AAM aircraft.

Under the LOI, PLANA says it will supply its hybrid-electric AAM aircraft, CP-01, to Hi-Air from 2030. The first 10 aircraft will be delivered in 2031, with the remaining 20 to be delivered later.

PLANA reports it also has LOIs with Ghenus Air in the United States and SkyTaxi in Japan, to supply 20 and 50 aircraft, respectively since last year.

Hi-Air is a South Korean small-scale air operator license holder for small-scale air transport services according to the press release. “The company was founded in 2019 and started operations from Ulsan Airport. Hi-Air currently operates flights to Gimpo, Muan, Suncheon, and Jeju. In 2022, Hi-Air became the first commercial air carrier in South Korea to reach 500,000 cumulative passengers. The company recently launched a new route between Muan and Kitakyushu, Japan.

“Under the MOU, PLANA and Hi-Air will jointly develop business models for passenger and cargo transportation, based on the AAM aircraft. The companies expect to create synergies by leveraging their respective expertise in aircraft operation and development.”
