Leonardo has partnered with Aeroporti di Roma (AdR) to equip vertiports with technological solutions and ground equipment.
The collaboration was announced at the World ATM Congress in Madrid.
It follows a previous agreement signed between the companies at the beginning of 2022.
“In the future thanks to the progressive implementation of new technologies, this will allow for more agile, faster and sustainable travel in complete safety,” states Laurent Sissmann, Senior Vice President Unmanned Systems at Leonardo.
“This is a perfect synthesis of our commitment to two key strategic objectives, sustainability and innovation, which we also prioritise in our infrastructure projects for the airport of the future,” adds Ivan Bassato, Chief Aviation Officer of Aeroporti di Roma.
The parties aim to launch vertiport services between Fiumicino airport and Rome in 2024.
Leonardo recently participated in the ILA Berlin 2022 Airshow.
