One of the highlights of last year’s ITS World Congress in Singapore has announced it’s taking bookings for its first commercial flights, but they won’t happen for three years.
Volocopter, which demonstrated its idea for a “Voloport” on the iconic floating football field in the city and flew a demonstration over Marina Bay last October, says people can reserve their tickets online and be amongst the very first to take this new form of mobility.
The VoloFirst costs €300 and can be reserved with a 10% deposit. There are only 1000 presale reservations available for a limited time.
“Based on our public test flights and regulatory achievement record, we have paved the way to make electric flight in cities common in just a few years. With the start of reservations, we now invite our supporters and innovators around the world to join us and be amongst the first to experience this new and exciting form of mobility,” said Volocopter CEO Florian Reuter.
A flight with a duration of around 15 minutes will be scheduled for passengers within the first 12 months after commercial launch. They’ll also get a video of the passenger’s flight and a limited edition, personalised certificate.
The reservations for the first VoloCity flights are available world-wide on the Volocopter Reservation Platform.
