Skyports, the designer and builder of infrastructure for advanced air mobility (AAM) craft, has signed an agreement with the AirAsia Aviation Group to examine the opportunities for air taxi vertiport construction throughout Malaysia.

The accord calls for London-based Skyports to work with AirAsia’s specialized AAM unit to explore optimal locations for air taxi vertiport services, with a focus on Kuala Lumpur as the first city that will feature the future aerial transport option; this effort will identify potential infrastructure positions and determine whether new vertiports must be built, or which can instead be added to existing structures. 

It will also evaluate requirements and frameworks needed to eventually create and operate a network of vertiports across Malaysia.
