Uber on Tuesday announced Melbourne (Australia) as the first non-US city (after Los Angeles and Dallas) in which it will launch Uber Air.
It aims to start test flights in 2020 with full commercial operations in 2023.
Uber Air’s eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) flying taxis are specifically designed for short trips.
Uber Copter – the first manifestation of Uber Air – begins operating in New York City next month.
