Skyports Raises US $23 million in Series B Funding Round

Skyports raised US $23 million in its Series B Funding Round.

The investment will help to grow Skyports’ drone service operations in both new and existing markets, including the UK, Europe, and Asia.

The company will also work with air taxi manufacturers to provide landing infrastructure in key areas.

“The support of our original investors who have deep experience in aviation and infrastructure and the addition of new capital from world class companies with a global footprint enables us to build the air taxi-ecosystem alongside our best-in-class vehicle partners for initial operations within a couple of years,” states Duncan Walker, CEO of Skyports.

Investors participating in this round included Groupe ADP, Solar Ventus, Irelandia, and Kanematsu Corporation. Kanematsu Corporation will also take a seat on the Skyports board.

Skyports has recently joined a Consortium with Eve and other urban air mobility (UAM) organizations, to develop a Concept of Operations (CONOPS) for UAM growth in the Miami-Dade area.
