LAZ Parking and Skyports Announce Partnership to Develop Air Taxi Vertiports in Los Angeles

Skyports, the world’s leading vertiport designer, builder and operator, and LAZ Parking, one of the largest parking companies in the United States, announced a partnership agreement to develop and deploy vertiports for electric air taxis in Los Angeles. Vertiports are dedicated sites that enable take-off, landing and recharging of the electric aircraft. Through the partnership, Skyports and LAZ will develop vertiports supporting passenger air taxi operations at locations across the region.

The vertiports will enable quiet, efficient, zero-carbon emission air taxi passenger services.

LAZ is actively deploying new technologies that will transform traditional parking locations into multi-modal transportation hubs, connecting people to places more efficiently and sustainably. Skyports is leading the way in advanced air mobility infrastructure and will integrate its operational know-how, design expertise, and partnerships with world-class vehicle manufacturers and operators to build a network of vertiports across Los Angeles.

The vertiports will enable quiet, efficient, zero-carbon emission air taxi passenger services that provide a new, green and clean transportation alternative to residents and visitors. Working closely with regulatory bodies and in consultation with local stakeholders, Skyports adheres to design and operational principles that prioritize safety, connectivity and accessibility, and reflect the needs of the communities it serves.

Addison Ferrell, Head of Americas for Skyports, said:

“We’re excited to be working with LAZ Parking to deploy take-off and landing sites for electric air taxis, first in Los Angeles, followed by the rest of the U.S.. Our partnership with LAZ enables us to leverage their extensive portfolio of facilities for vertiport development, creating value for LAZ customers, partners, and communities. LAZ is an ideal partner for Skyports because it has operated in the area for many years, and with that comes strong partnerships and a deep understanding of the mobility landscape.”

 

LAZ is a recognized pioneer in the parking industry for the integration of technology into parking operations and for a range of innovative IT solutions, such as remote monitoring, eCommerce services, and Proximity On-Demand Services, or PODS.

Alan Lazowski, Chairman and CEO of LAZ Parking, said:

“This partnership with Skyports is both an acknowledgement of LAZ’s leadership in the area of technology and a recognition of our excellence in both traditional and tech-enabled parking and last-mile mobility solutions. We are honored and excited to be partnering on the implementation of this cutting edge service with Skyports, a company as committed to innovation, sustainability, and customer service as we are at LAZ.”
