Be one of the first 1,000 to book yourself a trip on a VoloCity aircraft. Tickets cost €300 (about S$480.50); only 366 remain as of press time
After nearly a decade of development, Volocopter is ready for its fleet of air taxis to finally take flight. And the brand is so confident that day is near that it’s already selling tickets for those early rides in the sky.
On 16 September, the German aviation startup announced that it is now taking reservations for its very first flights. Each VoloFirst ticket comes with a 15-minute flight aboard one of the company’s VoloCity aircrafts, a video of the trip and an official personalised certificate from the startup.
While Volocopter is still waiting on certification from authorities, it has decided to start selling tickets for public flights because of successful tests in Germany, Finland and Singapore (it unveiled its VoloPort, the world’s first flying taxi station, at Marina Bay in 2019). There are no set dates for the flights yet, though the company expects to commercially launch in the next “two to three years”.
