2024 Olympics in FranceFrance is set to begin testing electric air taxis in the coming months, with the goal of launching them in time for the 2024 Summer Olympics, Aeroport de Paris said in a statement last week.

The flying taxis will be tested at a hub outside Paris at Pontoise. The city hopes to create two dedicated flight paths to ferry passengers for the 2024 Olympics and Paralympics.

One route will carry passengers via Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Le Bourget airports, while the second will travel between two suburbs southwest of the French capital, the statement added.

The project is a joint venture between aircraft developers Volocopter GmbH, Airbus SE, Vertical Aerospace Group Ltd, Lilium NV and Joby Aviation and France’s civil aviation authority, Bloomberg reported.
