Uber could take to the skies as soon as 2023 as it doubled down Friday on its launch date for an air taxi service called Uber Air.
Joby is known for keeping its prototype air taxi close to its chest —and raising a healthy sum from the investment arm of JetBlue and Toyota last year.
With Joby’s planes the trips are supposed to be quiet, emission, and efficient, aka the electric vehicle dream.
According to current plans, the first three cities to have Uber’s air taxi business are Dallas, Los Angeles, and Melbourne, Australia, where the company will build skyports by 2023.
The electric taxi space is crowded with startups like Lilium vying for an “above traffic” solution, but Uber claims its ride-sharing expertise means its offering will be miles above the rest with “airspace support.”
