Eve Air Mobility and Yugo Global Industries have signed a memorandum of understanding to study the potential for urban air mobility and eVTOL flights in Southeast Asia

Singapore-based Yugo is a private aviation network established by aviation experts, with a global presence and a focus on Southeast Asia. In its mission to support regional air mobility innovation, Yugo benefits from the support of partner air transport operators such as PhilJets and Helistar, two of the region’s solid key players.

Together, Eve and Yugo will focus on the potential infrastructure requirements to support eVTOL operations, including regulations. They will also analyse service centre and vertiport size and capabilities, ground handling and other areas as needed.

“We are looking forward to collaboratively working with Yugo to study and help define the UAM ecosystem in Singapore and Southeast Asia,” said Johann Bordais, CEO of Eve Air Mobility. “Our goal is to also understand and define a business model that not only enables eVTOL flights in the region, but also advances the overall mobility ecosystem.”

Eve is committed to helping introduce urban air mobility in the Asia Pacific region. The company is already working with various key stakeholders across the region to collaboratively build the ecosystems and explore future operations in multiple countries.

“We strongly believe that Southeast Asian economies will greatly contribute to the development of the eVTOL and UAM industry,” said Thierry Tea, chairman of Yugo. “Our collaboration with Eve will offer valuable insights into the essential requirements for regional air mobility development.”
