UrbanLink and Ferrovial Vertiports partner to develop Lilium Jet launchpads in the USA

UrbanLink Air Mobility LLC (UrbanLink), a South Florida-based advanced air mobility (AAM) operator, has entered into a partnership with Ferrovial Vertiports, a subsidiary of Ferrovial, a global infrastructure company, to explore the development of sites for vertiports in key U.S. markets. The vertiports will serve as launchpads for UrbanLink’s Lilium Jets services.

“UrbanLink and Ferrovial Vertiports will collaborate on the development of the facilities beginning with Ferrovial’s planned South Florida vertiport network.” said a company press release.  “As preferred partners, UrbanLink and Ferrovial Vertiports will work together on the placement, operational planning, and facility design to ensure safe and secure vertiports optimized for eVTOL operations and a seamless passenger experience.

“UrbanLink is poised to be the first airline in the U.S. to integrate eVTOL aircraft into its fleet and will lead the entry into service and management of AAM in South Florida and other markets. In May, UrbanLink announced its partnership with Lilium, developer of the first eVTOL jet, and a commitment to purchase 20 Lilium Jets with scheduled pre-delivery payments. With entry into service expected by Summer 2026, UrbanLink is collaborating with partners Ferrovial Vertiports, Lilium, and other AAM leaders to select service routes for its initial eVTOL flights as well as site selections for vertiports, furthering the AAM ecosystem and contributing to the industry’s overall growth.

“Currently, UrbanLink is focused on providing eVTOL flight operations in South Florida, Los Angeles, and Southern California, with plans for additional destinations underway. This initiative will pave the way for a new era of urban air mobility, offering faster, greener, and more efficient transportation solutions, transforming how people move to, through, and between cities.”
