Ferrovial partners with Milligan to develop locations for UK vertiports

Ferrovial, through its Airports division, reports that it has partnered with Milligan to identify and develop sites to launch urban air mobility operations in the United Kingdom. The collaboration the company says will advance its plan to design, build and operate vertiports in this strategic market.

“Through this collaboration, the partners will identify demand-rich locations, select potential sites, and carry out assessment criteria to determine the viability of each site for electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL) operations. They will work along with AECOM and Lichfields, who are acting as planning advisors” according to the press release.

“Vertiports will play a critical role in enabling Urban Air Mobility (UAM) operations in this breakthrough technology, offering sustainable, convenient air connections and transforming how people move to, through, and between cities.

“Imperatives for the locations being sought are that they are compatible with airspace requirements, are at least 4,000m2 with connectivity to utilities, and avoid residential or noise-sensitive areas. Sites can be located on the ground and on top of existing buildings, such as rooftops or carparks, with design and fit-out costs covered.

“Milligan and Ferrovial are now in active discussions with local authorities, landowners, and asset owners in strategic UK locations that align with Ferrovial Vertiports’ demand model.”
