Crisalion Mobility, a Spanish leader in the design and development of advanced electric mobility solutions that are efficient, safe and sustainable, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Bluenest by Globalvia,the innovation business line of leading global transport infrastructure manager Globalvia for Advanced AirMobility (AAM) and vertiport management. Under the agreement, the two companies will collaborate on Advanced Air Mobility projects in Europe and Latin America, as well as on demo tests and the integration of eVTOLs and vertiports.
This strategic alliance will see the two Spanish AAM leaders work closely together to drive progress inintegrating eVTOLS and vertiports, guaranteeing safe, efficient operability on land and in the air.
The initial goal of the agreement is the successful integration of eVTOLs and vertiports and a clear definition of operations, with a view to effectively planning and optimising the processes which allow for interaction and compatibility between eVTOLs and vertiports. This will include enabling smart mobility in and around vertiports, as well as ensuring safety and operational efficiency during take-off and landing in the corresponding airspace.
Under this agreement, the two companies will also exchange technical information, define and develop locations and routes for the implementation of regular vertiports, strengthen cooperation to maximise aircraft performance and vertiport development, develop and study business models for possible use cases and services, and work together on enabling AAM routes for Crisalion aircraft operated by third parties.
This cooperation will form part of regional commercial efforts in Europe and Latin America and a global strategy to test and validate new technologies and processes to enhance passenger experience and the operation of associated infrastructure.
“We are pleased to announce this strategic partnership with Bluenest, which represents a decisive joint step forward towards innovative Advanced Air Mobility solutions in Europe and Latin America and lays the groundwork to allow us to achieve our goals. This agreement clearly evidences our unwavering shared commitment to delivering innovation, efficiency and security in future Integrity aircraft operations at Bluenest by Globalvia vertiports; these are crucial factors which must underpin new air mobility,”said Óscar Lara Rapp, COO of Crisalion Mobility.
José Ignacio Rodríguez Modroño, Managing Director of Bluenest by Globalvia, said: “Collaboratingwith Crisalion Mobility is paramount for us to perform advanced integration tests prior to real commercial operations. As national leaders in eVTOL and vertiports infrastructure supply for Advanced Air Mobility, it is our duty andmission to work together towards a swift market uptake in Spain, Europe and then scale up worldwide. We look forward to a close cooperation in the long term to enable safe operations of the Integrity eVTOL at Bluenest by Globalvia vertiports”.
About Crisalion Mobility
Crisalion Mobility is a leading Spanish designer and developerof advanced electric mobility solutions which are efficient, safe and sustainable, in the air as well as on the ground.
Crisalion Mobility is committed to improving people's quality of life and helping to protect the environment through smart ground and air mobility solutions using cutting-edge technology.
Created in 2019 and formerly known as UMILES Next, Crisalion Mobility has a pioneering dual commitment to electric ground and air mobility, developing its
own innovative technologies to provide solutions for Spanish and international mobility operators.
By 2030, there will be electric aircraft operating in urban and regional airspace, and autonomous ground mobility experiences, controlled remotely from a
control centre, are already a reality.
Crisalion Mobility develops competitive solutions in both of these areas:
• The first Spanish eVTOL and one of the first in Europe to successfully complete test flights.
• The first prototype for a remote control centre for ground vehicles in Spain, which will be tested soon in real-world private environments.
