Kenya Airways (KQ) has signed an agreement with Embraer, the Brazilian aircraft maker to develop operating models in its key markets.
Fahari Aviator, KQ’s unmanned air division aims to design a network for the safe operation of Electric Vertical Aircraft (EVA).
Investment in zero-emission electric aircraft has grown as consumers push for greener options in the transport sector, which is looking for new ways to fight congestion in big cities.
Fahari’s partnership with Embraer’s EVE says that the time for traveling from Kenya’s airport to Nairobi CBD could be cut from over an hour to just six minutes.
“The creation of disruptive and accessible solutions in urban air mobility will help democratize movement,” Andre Stein, president and chief executive of Eve, said in the release.
