Bluenest by Globalvia and Helibravo Aviação to foster Urban and Advanced Air Mobility in Portugal

Helibravo Aviação and Bluenest by Globalvia, announced at AAM Summit Lisbon a cooperation agreement to jointly promote Urban and Advanced Air Mobility (UAM/AAM) in Portugal. The two partners say that “by combining each company’s capabilities and experience in operations and infrastructure, we are set to foster the development, deployment, and operation of vertiports and eVTOLs.”

“The development of this collaboration, will allow the partners to evaluate, and validate the transition from conventional helicopter flights to advanced air mobility with eVTOL aircrafts” according to the press release. “The goal is demonstrating the feasibility, safety, and affordability of UAM/AAM projects, including how the traditional heliports infrastructure will evolve into vertiports.

“Helibravo Aviação, a Portuguese company in passengers’ transportation with helicopters, has experience in certifying and managing heliport infrastructure. The awareness of the importance of finding alternatives and evolving from helicopter to eVTOL flights for UAM/AAM, ensuring safety, efficiency, sustainability, and operability is paramount. Optimising the service to passengers and cargo in vertiports was the key to develop a Joint Venture project with Bluenest by Globalvia, an expert in air mobility infrastructure (vertiports), with the objective to test the first designs and systems developed in a real operational environment to gather relevant data in Portugal as a benchmark, including demo test flights with an eVTOL.

“Hence, the aim of this collaboration is to co-develop the first network of vertiports that will launch Urban Air Mobility in key locations in Portugal, for both passengers and goods (cargo logistics). Additionally, both companies will explore future commercial operations in vertiports for air shuttle, panoramic tours, and emergency services.

“Bluenest is the company of the Globalvia Group developing urban air mobility worldwide. Globalvia is a company managing transport infrastructure concessions and mobility services, designed to promote the sustainable development of the communities. The company manages 21 highways and 7 railways, high speed rail and the largest bus and train operator in the United Kingdom. Globalvia is present across ten countries in three continents: Spain, Portugal, USA, Ireland, Costa Rica, Chile, United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway, and Singapore.”
