Eve Urban Air Mobility Solutions (Eve), an Embraer company and Nautilus Aviation, a division of Morris Group and Northern Australia’s largest helicopter operator, have announced a partnership focused on accelerating the development of the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) ecosystem in Australia. The partnership will see the introduction of Eve’s electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft (eVTOL) serving some of Queensland’s most iconic tourism attractions including the Great Barrier Reef.
As part of the partnership, Nautilus has ordered ten of Eve’s eVTOL aircraft, with flights taking off over the Great Barrier Reef by 2026. Morris Group Founder and CEO, Chris Morris said the new partnership with Eve accelerates the progress towards 100% of scenic flights over the Great Barrier Reef coming from zero-emission electric aviation and is in line with Morris Group’s commitment to reach net-zero emission by 2030 across all of its businesses.
“This partnership is an exciting development for Nautilus Aviation and Morris Group. We believe economic success and environmental sustainability go hand-in-hand and aim to strengthen and enrich the environments in which we work. Eve’s eVTOL technology will integrate seamlessly into our operations to deliver a range of exciting zero-emission tourism experiences,” said Morris.Email Post to a Friend
