Skyports, a company specializing in building landing infrastructure for aerial taxis, believes that Dubai will lead the way in integrating a comprehensive network of flying taxis into its public transportation system.

Skyports initially unveiled plans for "vertiports," which are designated launching pads for airborne taxis, in February. These vertiports are set to be strategically located near key areas in Dubai, including Dubai International Airport, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Downtown, and Dubai Marina.

These locations are intended to connect some of Dubai's busiest and most populous areas, offering high-speed, zero-emissions transportation solutions. Joby Aviation, a U.S.-based startup specializing in electric takeoff and landing vehicles (eVTOLs), has joined forces with Skyports to support this initiative.

The flying car market is projected to reach $150 billion by 2035, and various startups are working to prove to companies and governments that the technology can reduce traffic congestion and pollution in major cities. Electric-powered eVTOLs are designed to be quieter than traditional helicopters, making them more suitable for urban environments.

Competition among companies to establish networks of short-term personal helicopter rides is underway in major cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Paris. Even airlines such as Delta, American, and United are investing in futuristic transportation solutions to provide passengers with efficient airport transportation options.
