Eve announces Halo as launch partner in the Urban Air Mobility market
With an order for 200 eVTOL aircraft
Eve Urban Air Mobility Solutions, Inc. (Eve) and Halo today announced a partnership focused on developing Urban Air Mobility (UAM) products and services in the United States and the United Kingdom. This partnership includes an order for 200 of Eve’s Electric Vertical TakeOff and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Deliveries are expected to start in 2026. This order represents one of the largest in the UAM industry and secures Halo as the launch partner for Eve in both the US and the UK markets.
Under the terms of this agreement, Halo, a premium helicopter travel provider in the US and UK and the first global vertical lift provider, will work with Eve to develop a new eVTOL operation in both countries. Eve is an independent company formed by Embraer to accelerate the UAM ecosystem around the world.
This collaboration, the first international eVTOL operator partnership of its kind, will benefit from the work that Eve has already invested in the UK market as the leader of a consortium that is solving the regulatory and operational issues to bring eVTOL operations to London. In collaboration with the UK Civil Aviation Authority´s “innovation sandbox” program, Eve and Halo’s partnership will be one of the first operators to build upon this work and continue to develop London as a viable and attractive market for UAM operations.
Beyond the initial order and collaboration to develop a new eVTOL operation, Eve and Halo will also partner on the continued development of Eve’s Urban Air Traffic Management system as well as the fleet operations and services product offerings that Eve offers as an ecosystem integrator for UAM operations. The strength of Halo’s international operations, together with Eve’s UAM portfolio, will be an important demonstration of how such partnerships can increase accessibility and affordability as these two companies work to safely scale UAM operations around the world.
