Santa Cruz, CA, and Dubai, UAE, Feb 11, 2024 — Joby Aviation, Inc. (NYSE:JOBY), a company developing all-electric aircraft for commercial passenger service, today announced it has signed a definitive agreement with Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) to launch air taxi services in the Emirate by early 2026, with Joby targeting initial operations as early as 2025.

The agreement, signed at the World Governments Summit in Dubai in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, provides Joby with the exclusive right to operate air taxis in Dubai for six years, and will position Dubai as a world leader in delivering the fast, clean and quiet air travel enabled by Joby’s revolutionary technology. The agreement secures a variety of support from the RTA, including financial mechanisms, for entry and maturing of service operations in Dubai.

JoeBen Bevirt, founder and CEO, Joby Aviation, said: “It is an honor to partner with the government of Dubai to demonstrate the value of sustainable air travel to the world.

“Today’s landmark agreement delivers on all three ingredients required to successfully launch an air taxi service - a definitive path to operations, well-placed infrastructure supported by dedicated partners, and an aircraft with the capacity and range to deliver meaningful journeys.

“We’re looking forward to delivering an incredible experience for residents and visitors to Dubai as early as 2025 and we’re excited to be laying the groundwork for the expansion of our service across the wider UAE.”

His Excellency Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors for RTA, commented on the agreement, saying, “the air taxi service is part of RTA’s efforts to embrace future transportation technologies and offers a novel and efficient mobility option for Dubai's residents and visitors, enabling fast, safe, and convenient travel to key city spots. This service will also enhance seamless multimodal transportation, improving citywide connectivity, and ensuring a smooth travel experience for passengers.”

Joby additionally signed an agreement with Skyports, who will design, build and operate four initial vertiport sites across Dubai. RTA, Skyports and Joby have worked together to identify Dubai International Airport (DXB), Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Marina and Dubai Downtown as the launch locations for Dubai’s air taxi service.

Joby’s aircraft, which was displayed in the region for the first time at the World Governments Summit, is designed to carry a pilot and four passengers at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour and will be operated by the Company, with a journey from Dubai International Airport to Palm Jumeirah expected to take just 10 minutes compared with 45 minutes by car. 

Joby and the RTA have been working closely with the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) of the UAE to ensure there is a regulatory route to support His Highness Sheikh Mohammed’s vision of being a world leader in the introduction of air taxis. The GCAA regulatory framework builds upon FAA standards with additional company testing and analysis alongside a high level of regulator oversight and an ongoing operational review process to ensure continued safety for early operations.

RTA, Joby and Skyports will now work on a wide range of topics, from customer journey design to stakeholder engagement and the integration of Joby’s service into the wider public transport network in Dubai. To support the development of its operations in Dubai, Joby has established a local operating entity and intends to recruit locally for the majority of its operational team. The company will also consider localization of other global business activities in Dubai and across the region. Joby recently announced it will participate in the Smart and Autonomous Vehicle Industry (SAVI) cluster established by the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO), as part of exploring broader operations across the UAE.

In November 2023, Joby’s aircraft became the first electric air taxi to fly in New York City, building on a number of recent successes including the launch of production at the Company’s initial manufacturing facility in California in June 2023 and the first ever delivery of an electric air taxi to the U.S. Department of Defense in September 2023. Joby is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and has raised more than $2 billion of funding to date, including investments from Toyota, Delta Air Lines, SK Telecom, Uber and Baillie Gifford.

Media assets, including photos and footage of Joby’s aircraft, animations of anticipated Dubai air taxi routes and renders of Dubai skyport designs, are available here.

Joby的电动空中出租车在迪拜的世界政府首脑会议上展出。

加州圣克鲁斯和阿联酋迪拜,2024 年 2 月 11 日——Joby Aviation, Inc.(纽约证券交易所股票代码:JOBY)是一家开发全电动商用客机服务的公司,今天宣布与迪拜道路和运输局(RTA)签署了一项最终协议,计划于 2026 年初在该酋长国推出空中出租车服务,Joby 计划最早于 2025 年开始运营。

在迪拜举行的世界政府首脑会议上,阿联酋副总统、总理兼迪拜酋长谢赫·穆罕默德·本·拉希德·阿勒马克图姆殿下出席了签约仪式。根据协议,Joby将在迪拜独家运营空中出租车业务六年,并将把迪拜定位为提供由Joby革命性技术带来的快速、清洁和安静的空中旅行的全球领导者。该协议确保了 RTA 为 Joby 进入迪拜市场和服务业务成熟提供各种支持,包括财务机制。

Joby Aviation的创始人兼首席执行官JoeBen Bevirt表示:“很荣幸能与迪拜政府合作,向世界展示可持续航空旅行的价值。

今天的里程碑式协议实现了成功推出空中出租车服务所需的所有三个要素——一条明确的运营路径,由专用合作伙伴提供完善的基础设施,以及一架具有提供有意义旅程的能力和航程的飞机。

“我们期待着在2025年尽早为迪拜的居民和游客提供令人难以置信的体验,我们很高兴为在阿联酋各地扩大我们的服务奠定基础。”

RTA总干事兼董事会主席Mattar Al Tayer阁下对这项协议发表了评论,他说:“空中出租车服务是RTA拥抱未来交通技术努力的一部分,为迪拜的居民和游客提供了一种新颖而高效的出行选择,能够快速、安全、便捷地到达城市的各个角落。这项服务还将增强无缝的多式联运,改善全市的连通性,确保乘客顺畅的出行体验。”

乔比还与 Skyports 签订了协议,后者将设计、建造和运营迪拜境内的四个首期垂直起降机场。RTA、Skyports 和乔比共同选定迪拜国际机场 (DXB)、朱美拉棕榈岛 (Palm Jumeirah)、迪拜码头区 (Dubai Marina) 和迪拜市中心 (Dubai Downtown) 作为迪拜空中出租车的首发地点。

Joby的飞行器在世界政府首脑会议上首次在该地区展出,设计用于搭载一名飞行员和四名乘客,最高时速可达 200 英里,将由该公司运营,从迪拜国际机场到朱美拉棕榈岛预计只需 10 分钟,而开车需要 45 分钟。

乔比和 RTA 一直与阿联酋民航总局 (GCAA) 密切合作,以确保有一条监管路线来支持谢赫·穆罕默德殿下提出的成为空中出租车领域全球领导者的愿景。GCAA 的监管框架以 FAA 标准为基础,同时进行额外的公司测试和分析,并接受监管机构的高度监督和持续的运营审查程序,以确保早期运营持续安全。

RTA、Joby和Skyports现在将致力于广泛的主题,从客户旅程设计到利益相关者的参与,以及将Joby的服务整合到迪拜更广泛的公共交通网络中。为了支持其在迪拜的业务发展,Joby建立了一个当地运营实体,并打算在当地招聘其运营团队的大多数成员。该公司还将考虑将迪拜和整个地区的其他全球业务活动本地化。Joby最近宣布,将参与阿布扎比投资办公室(ADIO)建立的智能和自主车辆产业(SAVI)集群,作为探索阿联酋更广泛业务的一部分。

2023年11月,乔比的飞机成为第一架在纽约市飞行的电动空中出租车,该公司在近期取得一系列成功的基础上,包括于2023年6月在加利福尼亚州的初始制造工厂投产,以及于2023年9月首次向美国国防部交付了电动空中出租车。Joby在纽约证券交易所上市,迄今为止已经筹集了超过20亿美元的资金,包括来自丰田,达美航空公司,SK电信,Uber和Baillie Gifford的投资。
