By taxi from Fiumicino and Ciampino airports to the center of Rome. Only the white cars have nothing to do with it this time. Indeed, they have wings and (for now) can only carry one passenger. Flying.
Yes, because we must not bother science fiction plots or even films in which urban mobility already takes place all in the skies. The first flying taxi was presented yesterday at Fiumicino Leonardo da Vinci airport and will enter service relatively soon: a couple of years. In fact, the awareness campaign aimed at promoting the use of electric air taxis has already begun. But immediately you can already experience and feel the thrill of wandering through the clouds above Rome, taking a seat in the “VoloCity” and observing the capital from the maximum height allowed by ENAC (the Italian flight agency) for drones. . VoloCity will in fact be exhibited at Fiumicino airport from 27 to 30 October and from 2 to 4 November 2021 in Piazza San Silvestro.

Cost of a trip? 140 euros per passenger (soon there will be two), including the pilot, for a “flying” trip that will last 12 or 15 minutes, depending on the distance to be covered starting from Ciampino or Fiumicino airport. The new service – guaranteed by the urban aircraft produced by Volocopter (the investment holding Atlantia and Aeroporti di Roma) will connect the Fiumicino hub with various locations in the city, through vertical airports. “This will allow quality travel in full comfort, significantly reducing both urban traffic congestion and CO2 emissions, as VoloCity’s 18 engines operate in electric mode,” says Carlo Bertazzo, CEO of Atlantia.
“We have amply demonstrated the flight capabilities of our full-size aircraft – adds Christian Bauer, Volocopter’s Chief Commercial Officer -. Now we are aiming for certification, so we will be ready for the first customers ». In practice, you will get off a plane and continue to fly to your hotel or congress venue to reach or, again, to the business meeting. The future is here.
