Eve Urban Air Mobility LLC signed a Letter of Intention with Avantto to develop the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) ecosystem in Latin America.

This partnership includes an order for 100 of Eve’s electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, as well as a collaboration to develop a new eVTOL operation in Brazil and across Latin America. Deliveries are expected to start in 2026.

Avantto and Eve plan to begin their partnership working together to develop new services and procedures that, together with communities and other industry stakeholders, can create a safe and scalable environment for eVTOL operations to expand. These efforts will focus on critical aspects of the passenger experience in order to design for all users, explains Eve, including how to maximize accessibility and inclusiveness in vertiports and eVTOL boarding operations.

Backed by Embraer’s 50-plus year history of aircraft manufacturing and certification experience, Eve unveils a unique value proposition by offering a suite of products and services.
