Roland Berger - "The future of Urban Air Mobility"

Online Event July 02, 2020 | 2:00 pm CEST

The future of Urban Air Mobility

Driven by increasing urbanization, the worsening bane of road congestion and new advances in aircraft technology and electric propulsion, the time is ripe for the emergence of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) – the transportation of persons or goods via flying vehicles over urban areas – as a new industry. However with its rapid global spread, massive death toll and resultant lockdowns and border closures, COVID-19 has devastated demand for travel globally and had a major impact not only on the aviation but also on other industries.



In our Online Event "The future of Urban Air Mobility" as part of the series ILA goes digital we will shade light on the impact of COVID-19 on the nascent industry of Urban Air Mobility and will discuss in particular the following topics:

  • Perspective for UAM before the COVID-19 crisis
  • Impact of COVID-19 on UAM (e.g. market demand, technology development, pilot/ test cases, implementation roadmap, etc.)
  • Opportunities and key success factors in the 'New Normal' with respect to UAM

We plan to have a panel of 3-4 industry leaders from established OEMs, UAM StartUps, operators and infrastructure providers as well as representatives from cities which have concrete plans to implement UAM services (or are already operating them).
