The major of New York Eric Adams, the president and managing director of the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) Andrew Kimball have recently taken the first steps to implement a hub unique of its kind for sustainable transports and deliveries. It is a helipad in New York, precisely downtown Manhattan (DMH).
This opens the possibility of electric taxis for the transport of passengers from the airport to downtown and of electric drones also for home deliveries. It seems that in less than two years, through drones, it will be possible to decrease the urban traffic and to halve travel times, with the target of reducing the atmospheric pollution. Just think that it would take only 7 minutes to reach Manhattan downtown from the JFK airport in New York. This direction is pursued by United States startups such as Joby Aviation and Volocopter that have started tests for flying taxis for passengers’ transport.
