EHang continues Asia expansion blitz with Thai air taxi services deal
China’s EHang, a pioneer in passenger-grade drones and urban air mobility solutions, is gearing up to offer air taxi services in Thailand through a joint venture with one of the country’s largest conglomerates CP Group.
The news comes weeks after EHang struck a strategic partnership with a Malaysian firm, AEROTREE, to co-develop urban air mobility (UAM) business. More recently, EHang reported receiving its largest-ever pre-order in Asia – supplying 100 EH216 air taxis to Indonesian aviation company Prestige Aviation. The company has also expanded its footprint to Korea and Japan.
Thailand’s CP Group is a multinational firm with investments in 21 countries and regions. EHang says its partnership with CP Group sets up a foundation for many potential use cases for air taxis in Thailand, such as aerial sightseeing, cargo transportation, last-mile delivery, city-wide air taxi transport, and smart city management.
