Ferrovial and Milligan to Identify Sites for UK Vertiports

Ferrovial’s Airports division has partnered with real estate developer, Milligan to identify and develop vertiport sites in the UK for urban air mobility operations.

Through this collaboration, the partners are working to identify demand-rich locations and select potential sites to construct vertiports. They will then carry out assessment criteria to determine the viability of each site for electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL) operations.

During this project, Ferrovial and Milligan will also work with AECOM and Lichfields, who will act as planning advisors.

Ultimately, it is hoped that this agreement will advance connectivity for towns and cities across the UK.

Brad Miller, Ferrovial Vertiports Managing Director for the UK and EMEA said:

“Freedom of movement is critical to global economic and social advancement. With a 70-year history of developing transportation infrastructure that helps communities flourish and grow, Ferrovial is proud to play a leading role in transforming the future of urban air mobility.”

Necessary requirements for the sought locations include their compatibility with airspace requirements, being at least 4,000 meters squared with connectivity to utilities, and avoiding residential or noise-sensitive areas.

The sites can be located on the ground and on top of existing buildings, such as on rooftops or carparks.
