To explore the feasibility of Urban Air Mobility (UAM), the RATP Group and Airbus signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU).
The MoU was signed by Catherine Guillouard, Chief Executive Officer of RATP Group, and Guillaume Faury, Chief Executive Officer of Airbus at the Tech for Good Summit in the Île-de-France region.
Both groups will work jointly to study on the viability of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) with the broader perspective of MaaS (Mobility-as-a-Service) which should enable point to point services to passengers by providing best service-based innovations in sustainable and shared mobility.
Both groups have committed themselves to analyse the conditions for developing the MaaS with controlled costs and work on inter-mobility and urban integration to make the flying vehicle accessible to as many people as possible. Keeping in view they agreed to collaborate on implementing a large ecosystem of relevant partners to develop the new transport offering in some of the other major cities of the world.
“Beyond mass transport, which remains our core business, it is important for RATP Group to promote its human and technical know-how to develop new forms of mobility and new services to support the smart cities of tomorrow. We are delighted to be working on this with Airbus, the world leader in the aerospace industry, which will provide its unique expertise in the aviation sector”, said Catherine Guillouard, CEO of RATP group.
“Autonomous flights or flying vehicles are no longer the reserves of science-fiction. We are developing technology demonstrators to allow populations to connect faster. We already have the technical blocks but we have to align them and integrate them into the user’s everyday life without compromising the safety, which is our priority. RATP is one of the major players in urban mobility. Its knowledge regarding passengers, their needs and related services, make them the ideal partner for Airbus”, said Guillaume Faury, CEO of Airbus.
