Joby and Atlantic Aviation collaborate to electrify infrastructure in New York and Southern California

Joby Aviation, Inc., a company developing electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft for commercial passenger service, today announced it is collaborating with Atlantic Aviation to electrify existing aviation infrastructure in New York and Southern California, paving the way for the launch of Joby’s revolutionary air taxi service.

The collaboration between Joby and Atlantic, a leading provider of aviation services and infrastructure, will focus on activating key Atlantic sites to support quiet, emissions-free air taxis, including the installation of Joby’s Global Electric Aviation Charging System (GEACS).

The two companies will undertake a comprehensive analysis of how Joby’s revolutionary air taxi can operate at these locations alongside traditional aircraft and other electric aircraft, offering customers a new way to move from point to point in congested cities that is quieter and more sustainable.

JoeBen Bevirt, Founder and CEO of Joby Aviation, “Infrastructure is a critical piece of the puzzle and Atlantic’s presence in these two key U.S. markets will help ensure we’re well positioned to deliver a meaningful service for our customers.

“We’re excited to be working together to lay the foundation for the next generation of clean and quiet flight.”

John Redcay, Chief Commercial & Sustainability Officer at Atlantic, commented, “Our collaboration with Joby is a key step in Atlantic’s push to bring existing aviation infrastructure into the future and solidify Atlantic’s leading role in supporting the growth of electric aviation.

“We will be a technology-agnostic supporter of advanced air mobility and our work with Joby is a key part of that journey.”
