    Holistische Air Mobility Initiative Bayern

    Working Task

    Air mobility is a new way of moving passengers and goods. The development of air mobility transport solutions is no longer a vision, but as a future mobility concept, it has the potential to directly connect rural regions and create completely new supply concepts and business ideas. The aim is to develop sustainable air mobility solutions and fully integrate them into the existing transport system.


    In close cooperation between industry, business, and science, a holistic, manufacturer-neutral, modular, and scalable solution for the planning, approval, development, and operation of vertiports at airports is being developed as part of AMI-AirShuttle. These are specified using the Munich Airport application and additionally validated using the example of Nuremberg Airport. The concept for the airport integration of “Air Mobility” (AM) is created with special consideration of environmental compatibility, slot neutrality, official requirements for the approval of flight procedures and ground infrastructure, digital solutions for a seamless travel chain as well as user requirements and public acceptance. The subsequent exploitation perspectives are diverse: The results will not only positively enrich the state of the art and science – but the developed concept can also be marketed nationwide.


    The safe, efficient, and sustainable integration of manned, electrified air taxis at commercial airports worldwide requires not only a new type of infrastructure (so-called vertiports) but also unique operating concepts, systems, approach and departure procedures, and permits. The project examines the prerequisites that must be created for a successful introduction. Using the example of two Bavarian commercial airports, universal solutions for integrating new technology into airport infrastructure, -operations, -airspace, and -systems are being developed and their feasibility is demonstrated.
