Milan, Italy, January 14, 2021, Walle announced today it is partnering with Jaunt Air Mobility eVTOL OEM to provide advanced air mobility transit services in Italy. Walle plans to operate an urban air taxi service by 2026, focusing on routes within 50 km.
"Our goal is to change the future of mobility," says Domenico Gagliardi, Founder & CEO of Walle. "Italy, as in much of Europe, is challenged by the time it takes to travel from outside a city to an urban center, often costing two or more hours one way, and the problem is only growing. 'Going Vertical' - to the sky is the obvious answer. We believe the Jaunt Journey by Jaunt Air Mobility offers a solution that meets with our core values of providing a safe, comfortable, and ultra-quiet ride for passengers."
"Walle is a perfect strategic partner; our mission at Jaunt is to produce the safest and most efficient eVTOL on the market and work with operators around the world, says Martin Peryea, CEO of Jaunt Air Mobility. We feel confident in our ability to commercialize our aircraft by 2026. The unique configuration of combining a fixed-wing airplane and single slow-rotor technology gives us revolutionary performance and the highest level of safety amongst all the eVTOL contenders."
Walle is currently working with the regulatory authorities and mapping out its first key routes for their air taxi service. One route is from Milan Airport to the city center of Milan, and another is from the Port of Naples to Capri's island. Walle is also aiming to provide services also for the Milano Cortina XXV Winter Olympics in 2026.
"We see business travelers and tourists utilizing our services. Our focus is entirely on the customer experience and, we believe safety will be a key in the adoption of this form of transit. Because Jaunt offers patented safety features and the ability to meet commercial, regulatory requirements, success is just around the corner, "stated Marco Pugliese, COO at Walle.
Walle Mobility is the first Italian startup focused on the Urban Air Mobility market. Our goal is to allow interurban air travel by connecting strategic city points. www.wallemobility.com
