Air Chateau “to develop six new heliports/vertiports across the UAE”

Air Chateau International is planning to build six heliports/vertiports throughout the United Arab Emirates, reports Khaleej Times.

The company has shortlisted 20 locations – of which six to eight will be finalised with work beginning on them before the end of the year, said the news report, with some of them being existing facilities which will need to be upgraded while others will built from new. The company is looking to develop these in densely populated areas.

“These heliports will be hybrid,” said Shilton Tony Irudayaraj, co-founder and CEO of the company. “Once completed, they can be used as heliports as well as vertiports where eVTOL aircrafts can also use them to land. This will help the air ecosystem to achieve more robust growth.”

In 2023 Air Chateau  announced it would buy up to 100 Archer Midnight eVTOLs in a deal worth nearly USD 500 million, as part of a plan to launch electric air taxi services in the UAE.
