Skyway and Skyportz Announce Strategic Collaboration
Skyway and Skyportz Partner to Develop Comprehensive Infrastructure for Australian Urban Air Mobility.
SAN RAFAEL, Calif., April 13, 2023 (Newswire.com) – Skyway, a leading Urban Air Traffic Management (UATM) operation center and air traffic navigation provider, and Skyportz, a Melbourne company focused on securing access to a range of vertiport development locations, are collaborating in a new partnership to expand the comprehensive infrastructure for Urban Air Mobility (UAM) in Australia. This partnership will bring together Skyway’s expertise in urban airspace navigation, vertiport planning and development, and vertiport management systems with Skyportz’s extensive network of potential landing sites across the continent ‘Down Under.’
“This partnership is a significant step towards unlocking the potential of UAM,” said Clifford Cruz, CEO of Skyway. “By combining our strengths in airspace management, vertiport planning and development, and management systems with Skyportz’s vast network of potential landing sites, we are at the forefront of this transformative industry.”
Skyportz is a vertiport developer with ready-to-activate sites throughout Australia, including existing helipads and airports, suburban and urban locations such as business parks, shopping centers, car parking garages, industrial sites, and greenfield city fringe developments. The company is also helping property developers to future-proof their projects so they can offer access to air taxi and freight services as soon as they start operating.
“Skyportz’s focus is on securing access to a range of Skyportz locations to ensure that we can offer the backbone of a destination network for UAM,” said Clem Newton-Brown, CEO of Skyportz. “We are thrilled to partner that business model with Skyway’s ability to provide comprehensive and customized vertiport management systems and UATM infrastructure”.
A collaboration with Skyportz opens the door for Skyway to provide a comprehensive infrastructure that satisfies the time-sensitive demands of the ever-expanding UAM market while securing its already substantial influence as a leader in vertiport development.
As they increase their reach through this significant collaborative relationship, Skyway, and Skyportz will enable a shift towards innovative problem-solving within the aviation industry as a whole. At a time when industry-wide action is undeniably critical, these two companies leverage and are enthusiastic about each others’ strengths and set a new pace for UAM development on a global scale.
