Spanish AAM industry cluster launches dialogue with airports on vertiport developments

SIAM (Spain Innovative Air Mobility), the Spanish cluster for innovative air mobility, has announced the creation of a series of dialogues with Spanish airports, including representatives of administration, operators, managers, manufacturers and constructors. The commitment was formalised at Expodrónica 2023 during the ratification ceremony of the memorandum of understanding for the creation of the association formed by Ineco, the Instituto Tecnológico de Galicia (ITG), Expodrónica, NTT DATA and the law firm Pinsent Masons.

According to the press release “The future round table, which will be set up before the end of the year, aims to generate a dialogue on vertiports between the different agents involved, sharing the needs and requirements to be considered, both operational and functional, as well as fostering relations between the actors in order to gather the main conclusions.

“This is the first initiative included in the framework of the future activities of the SIAM cluster and will include different workshops that will analyse the role of airports in the future of urban air mobility.

“The SIAM cluster seeks to bring together the needs of industry with Spanish and European governmental bodies, as well as to promote technological development through collaboration between research centres, the productive fabric, companies in the sector and public administrations of goods and passenger transport in cities, as well as the provision of infrastructure that enable the operation of autonomous vehicles in the urban environment. In this context, this initiative represents a unique opportunity that will facilitate the entry of innovation into the market through collaboration in the creation of new business models.”
