Back in 2019, Hyundai was one of the first to announce the Personal Air Vehicle air hub for flying cars. In partnership with the British company Urban-Air Port, the concept was developed for the world’s first air airport, which should open a new page in the history of air travel.

According to representatives of both companies, the project will develop a zero-emission infrastructure. This will enable the launch of the first flights of the next generation of electric autonomous aircraft. Already now the project is being spoken of as a city air port.

“Cars need roads, trains need rails, and planes need airports. Electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicles will need city air ports, ”explains Urban-Air Port.

The concept, dubbed Air-One, is supposed to improve connectivity and productivity. In addition, it will be able to offer environmentally friendly transport with zero emissions. The airport is expected to be 60% smaller than traditional air hubs, and deployment will take just a few days. Within the framework of such structures, it is easy to organize both passenger and cargo transportation, as well as support for rescue vehicles in emergency situations.
