Rolling out CityAirbus NextGen for the very first time is an important and very real step that we are taking towards advanced air mobility and our future product and market. Thank you to our community, team and partners all over the world for helping us make this a reality.

The new aircraft was unveiled along with the opening of Airbus’ new CityAirbus test centre in Donauwörth, Germany. This site will be dedicated to testing systems for electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles (eVTOLs).
