Uber wants to test their air taxis in Australia

An ‘UberAir’ taxi prototype

Could we be catching air taxis by the year 2023? According to Uber the answer is… yes and it will cost the same as an UberX!

Uber executives are discussing with Australian government officials whether or not our country can be the first to trial new ‘UberAir’ aircraft.

Uber Air forms part of the ride-sharing apps’ goal to see cars replaced with electric aircrafts, or “flying taxis,” capable of taking off and landing vertically as a quicker and more environmentally friendly way to travel.

Uber is shooting for a 2023 launch for its fleet of flying cars. Initially, Uber expects the flying taxis to require Uber Black pricing.
