Airservices Australia welcomes urban air mobility

UberAir

Urban air mobility has the potential to fundamentally transform the way people and goods move around our cities and reduce congestion on our roads. It has the potential to change our cities and the way we live, for the better.

As the nation’s airspace manager, Airservices has a clear role to ensure Australia’s skies are managed safely, efficiently and reliably for all airspace users, which includes low-level airspace users such as aerial taxis and drones.

Airservices has been working closely with a range of potential future airspace users, including Uber Elevate, as well as key government agencies to understand their views on future airspace use and management.

Airservices looks forward to continue working with Uber Elevate and all future airspace users to develop approaches to low-level airspace management that support the safe introduction of these new technologies.
