Reuters says that Enders explained how this type of transportation would save billions on concrete bridges and roads.

 

"One hundred years ago, urban transport went underground, now we have the technological wherewithal to go above ground," Airbus CEO Tom Enders said at the DLD digital tech conference in Munich, as reported by Reuters.

 

Enders said that they are at the moment in the experimentation phase, but the company does hope they will have a production aircraft for short flights developed by 2021.

 

Airbus is actively working on their Vahana project developed by A^3, the company's advanced projects and partnerships outpost located in the gridlocked Valley.
