SkyDrive Inc., a Japanese eVTOL aircraft manufacturer based in Japan, Saha Pathana Inter-Holding Public Company Limited (SPI) and Saha Tokyu Corporation Company Limited (Saha Tokyu) announced they have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to jointly explore new business utilizing SkyDrive’s eVTOL in Thailand.

SPI is a member of the Saha Group, a leading conglomerate in Thailand. The company develops industrial estates, invests in new businesses in Si Racha District, Chonburi Province, and other districts, and operates private airfields for small planes.

Saha Tokyu is a joint venture company between Tokyu Group in Japan and the Saha Group, and its main focus is on the real estate business, mainly serviced apartments in Si Racha District.

In Thailand, economic growth is being promoted by the expansion of Japanese companies into industrial estates. However, traffic congestion and environmental pollution from automobiles have become serious social issues. In response, the use of diverse transportation methods is expected to help alleviate these problems.

Based on this agreement, SkyDrive, SPI and Saha Tokyu will study use cases using the SKYDRIVE eVTOL in Sri Racha, Pattaya and Phuket in Thailand. The three companies will also explore further business opportunities, such as re-importing these use cases to Japan and investigating the air taxi business in Tokyu Group’s urban development.

This press release was prepared and distributed by SkyDrive.
