Airbus receives Innovation Award 2018 from MPC and PRIME

MPC and PRIME Research have announced Airbus´ Urban Air Mobility Organization has received the innovation award 2018, the company said.

An independent expert jury concluded that the future of urban air mobility can only be addressed by comprehensive concepts rather than by individual aircraft.

Airbus, with its on-demand helicopter booking platform, VOOM, is already offering an urban air mobility service in São Paulo and Mexico City and plans to further expand the service in 2019. VOOM will continue to lay the groundwork for the company´s longer-term vision of urban mobility using electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicles.

The Innovation Award jury consists of experts from the Automotive and Aviation Industry. It is supported by the consulting firm PRIME Research, a Cision company.
