PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has inked a tripartite memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Skyports and Volocopter to conduct a feasibility study for the deployment of vertiport infrastructure in Malaysia.

Skyports is the world-leading designer and operator of vertiport infrastructure for electric air taxis, while Volocopter is the pioneer of urban air mobility (UAM).

In a statement, MAHB group chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh (pic) said the newly-formed collaboration would explore the deployment of revolutionary electric air taxi services at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, Subang as well as other locations nationwide.

This would put the country among the leaders in the region in terms of willingness to implement UAM, he said.

Under the MoU, the parties would combine their distinct aerospace and aviation expertise to conduct a feasibility study, examining suitable vertiport solutions to enable the safe take-off and landing of passenger electric vertical takeoff and landing or eVTOL vehicles. ― Bernama
