According to a renowned car manufacturer, flying cars will be a reality in cities around the world by the end of this decade, helping to reduce traffic and vehicle pollution.

Michael Cole, the chief executive of Hyundai’s European operations, said the company had made “quite big investments” in urban air transportation, adding, “We feel it really is part of the future.”

“It will take some time before we can really get this off the ground,” Cole admitted.

“We believe that by the end of this decade, urban air mobility will provide a significant opportunity to relieve congestion in cities and reduce emissions, whether it is intra-city air mobility or inter-city air mobility.”

“It’s part of our future strategy of offering new, smart transportation solutions,” he said at a conference hosted by industry organization Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

In January 2020, the company unveiled their flying car concept, which was created in collaboration with Uber, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Hyundai is also working on the UK’s first airport without a runway, which will open in Coventry later this year and is designed for aircraft capable of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL).

The “urban airport” might be used by planes such as air taxis and self-driving delivery drones.
