Chongqing “to launch regional eVTOL services in second half of 2024”

China’s Xinhua news agency reports that Chongqing, a mountainous municipality in southwest China, “intends to introduce diverse recreational activities related to low-altitude sports and tourism. These activities include parachuting, paragliding and sightseeing over the Yangtze River and the cityscape of Chongqing by balloon, helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft.

“In March, it launched an interprovincial low-altitude air route to the city of Zigong in neighboring Sichuan Province for trial operation, with scheduled flights expected to start in the second half of this year. Looking ahead, Chongqing plans to open at least two low-altitude air routes for tourists to enjoy aerial views of the city’s landmarks.

“As a pilot city of the country’s low-altitude airspace management reform, Chongqing is also gearing up to extend low-altitude flights to the fields of logistics delivery, urban management and emergency rescue, according to the Chongqing economic and information commission.”

The Guangzhou Development Zone, in the capital city of Guangdong Province, where eVTOL manufacturer EHang’s headquarters is located, has launched the first batch of 10 low-altitude routes for express delivery and the city’s first low-altitude medicine-distribution route, said the news agency.
