“I am delighted to join Ferrovial, and I look forward to working with communities, public and regulatory officials, aviation and other transportation partners to help fulfill Ferrovial Vertiports’ vision of delivering a next-generation transportation option to cities, travelers, and commuters alike.”

Cox welcomed Costello on board and acknowledged that he will play a key role in assisting Ferrovial implement an expansive network of vertiports. 

“We are excited to add Kevin’s vast experience, regional insight and stakeholder knowledge in the Northeast region and across the U.S. to our team,” he said. “We are proud to continue building an unparalleled team committed to our mission to transform the way people move within, through and between congested cities across the globe.”
