Fancy flying through traffic? Volocopter eyes bringing air taxis to PH

A global firm providing air taxi services is in talks with Philippine officials to bring their technology to the country.

Germany’s Volocopter revealed a recent meeting of officials of its Singaporean unit with Trade Secretary Alfredo Pascual and Department of Information and Communications Technology Ivan John Uy to align expectations on how they can offer special choppers for hire in the country.

“We discussed the possibility of launching Volocopter’s air taxi services in the Philippines in an effort to alleviate the country’s congestion issues and to create sightseeing routes for tourists,” the company said.

Also in that meeting is DFNN executive chairman Ramon Garcia, Jr., who may be Volocopter’s local partner in its foray to Manila. The service is being marketed as a solution to road traffic.

“We look forward to continuing our conversations with the delegates by forging a strong partnership that will also enable us to bring urban air mobility to life in the Philippines!,” Volocopter added.
