Buoyed by successful public demo flights in Berlin, Helsinki and Singapore, German air taxi company Volocopter is taking bookings for a 15-minute flight in the two-seat aircraft.
The announcement was made at today’s Greentech Festival being held in Berlin.
The booking platform is open now but will only accept 1,000 reservations over a limited time.
The experience is called ‘VoloFirst’, costs €300 and can be reserved with a 10% deposit. Anyone can register from anywhere in the world.
“Based on our public test flights and regulatory achievement record, we have paved the way to make electric flight in cities common in just a few year,” said Volocopter CEO Florian Reuter.
“With the start of reservations, we now invite our supporters and innovators around the world to join us and be amongst the first to experience this new and exciting form of mobility.”
What you get for your €300 VoloFirst:
- A flight of approximately 15 minutes scheduled within the first 12 months after commercial launch
- A video of the passenger’s flight
- A limited edition, personalised certificate.
“While the final certification for air taxis is still pending, we do have a detailed realistic timeline to launch commercial VoloCity flights in the next 2-3 years,” added Volocopter’s Chief Commercial Officer Christian Bauer.
