Latin American Cities

The Mobility Problem

City centered perspective. The mobility problem in Latin

American cities is quite unique. It determines the nature of

our Urban Air Mobility systems - air vehicles, airspace

integration architecture and vertiports.

Latin American Cities

City Growth

City growth poses a major challenge for Latin American

cities. Our Infrastructure Networks connectivity without the

need for physical mobility infrastructure is a diruptive

way to alleviate the existing pressure for city growth.

Latin American Cities

New Business Cases

Our Infrstructure Networks offer the potential to generate

new business cases, from passenger transportation

together with Transportation Network Companies (TNCs)

and freight transportation, all the way to energy,

real estate and data businesses, generating new valuable

opportunities. We will be talking about the challenges.
