Abu Dhabi Airports has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with French engineering and operations firm Groupe ADP.

The MoU aims to explore the potential of advanced air mobility (AAM) in Abu Dhabi, a new concept of air transportation that uses electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft to move people and cargo.

Abu Dhabi Airports and Groupe ADP will engage in joint planning, design, development and operation of ground infrastructure for AAM in Abu Dhabi, following engagement with stakeholders, a feasibility study, and market assessment to develop the industry roadmap.

Jamal Salem Al Dhaheri, MD and CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports said, “We are excited to partner with industry-leading Groupe ADP to explore the potential of introducing AAM to Abu Dhabi. This agreement is a testament to our commitment to lead the way by collaborating with our partners to deliver innovation and technology that drives efficiency, convenience, and most importantly, sustainability.”

Philippe Martinet, MD of Groupe ADP Airport Services, said, “We are proud to enter this partnership with Abu Dhabi Airports to collaborate on building the AAM roadmap and accelerating the development of the necessary infrastructure in Abu Dhabi.

“With our extensive experience, we will be supporting Abu Dhabi Airports in laying the ground for AAM service implementation in Abu Dhabi. We look forward to supporting Abu Dhabi Airports with their long-term strategy in innovation and sustainability.”

The technology will be implemented gradually, and its first phase is currently being tested at the United States Customs and Border Protection (USCBP) facility at Abu Dhabi International Airport.
