Eve and Fahari Aviation Sign Agreement for up to 40 EVTOLS

March 2022 saw Eve and Fahari Aviation, a subsidary of Kenya Airways, sign a Letter of Intent (LoI) for up to 40 electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft.

The agreement also includes a joint study on how to scale the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) market and launch cargo drones in Kenya.

“The journey to realize the dream of eVTOL vehicles in Kenya is on course, and the partnership with Eve is a key achievement for us as part of the strategy to adopt new technologies as a growth strategy for the sustainable development of Africa,” said Allan Kilavuka, Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Kenya Airways.

The project is slated to begin deliveries in 2026.

Eve recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Corporación América Airports.
