The partnership, which marks an important step in the growth of the AAM industry in Latin America, will involve developing vertiport networks and operations for relevant use cases and detailed planning for the deployment of permanent vertiport infrastructure.

Corporación América Airports currently operates 53 airports in six countries across Latin America and Europe including Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Ecuador, Armenia and Italy.

The collaboration will also see the two companies asses which of Corporación América Airports will be best suited for vertiport deployment and prioritize locations based on market readiness and opportunity.

“We are proud to partner with Corporación América Airports to expand and stimulate the AAM ecosystem in key markets in Latin America,” said Addison Ferrell, Director, Skyports Infrastructure. “We’re at an incredibly exciting point in the industry’s development as we take concrete steps towards implementing a scalable vertiport network that will facilitate commercial eVTOL operations; this partnership will be instrumental to achieving those objectives. Bringing together CAAP’s proven airport leadership and Skyports’ deep expertise of AAM infrastructure will make for a compelling partnership.”

“As a leading airport concession operator, Corporación América Airports continues to build strong partnerships to position itself as an agent of change in the development of the Advance Air Mobility ecosystem,” said Martin Eurnekian, Chief Executive Officer of Corporación América Airports. “With over 20 years of expertise and operations in six countries across LatAm and Europe, we are firmly committed to continue building the future of this new way of transportation, which will be leaner, faster and more sustainable.”
