LG Electronics Business Solutions has agreed a long-term strategic collaboration with Urban-Air Port (UAP).

The agreement to collaborate follows a meeting between the two companies in Barcelona in January and builds on a productive relationship that began in 2022 when LG supplied digital infrastructure for UAP’s launch of its AirOne vertiport in Coventry.

This latest signing set in place a strategic, long-term commitment to work together to develop and serve the market for an operation of safe, reliable and efficient advanced air mobility (AAM) systems globally using UAP and LG Solutions cutting-edge technologies.

The first step in this relationship is the development of a word-first LG0enable Urban-Air Port AirOne Next Gen – a multi-stacked hangar vertiport reference design. In the longer term, LG and UAP intend to develop a set of products, designs and services to further widescale adoption globally.

Ricky Sandhu, Founder and Executive Chairman, UAP commented: “This is a hugely exciting moment in the evolution of our technology. By incorporating LG’s immense technical expertise and product portfolio, we can jointly offer the most advanced and seamlessly integrated vertiport infrastructure. With LG’s focus on quality and efficiency, combined with our focus on safety and innovation, we are very excited about revealing our fully coordinate, UAP and LG reference design vertiport for order on spec. This industry needs to scale and to do that, consolidation across multi levels will be required – this simplification for vertiports is one more positive step towards bringing this technology to market. ”

He was joined by LG’s Enterprise Manager, Energy, Industry and Mobility, Seamus Walsh who added: “The urban air mobility market is only in its infancy, but with so much investment going into developing the vehicles, there remains a huge opportunity to design, create and deploy the multi-faceted infrastructure that’s required to enable them. Urban-Air Port is a true leader in that space and with our expertise in developing smart solutions for retail, transportation and digital experiences, we see huge potential for the future in this long-term collaboration.”
