Airbus has signed a memorandum of understanding with Munich Airport International (MAI) to start developing advanced air mobility ecosystems globally.

Airbus is developing an electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft called CityAirbus NextGen along with key support and service offerings around it while Munich Airport is offering ground infrastructure services.

The agreement expanded its partnership globally to support select cities and regions around the world with Airbus on air mobility. The objective is to create ecosystems that will allow for seamless integration of eVTOL aircraft with other means of mobility to add to a city or community’s transportation options.

Airbus has been developing its CityAirbus NextGen since it unveiled the aircraft in September 2021. The company is developing advanced air mobility aircraft as eVTOLs not only for new mobility services but also to reduce emissions in aviation across its product range.

To further its goals, Airbus launched it Air Mobility Initiative, which is a consortium of partners dedicated to the advancement of air mobility in Bavaria and Germany.
