Guests of the Olympics-2024 will fly around Paris by air taxi

Five years later, the Summer Olympic Games will be held in Paris. The flow of tourists in the French capital will increase sharply. Transport collapse is very likely. To prevent it, the authorities decided on radical measures. They will deploy an air taxi. An unmanned aerial taxi will be provided by Airbus. It will quickly deliver passengers from Charles de Gaulle Airport directly to the city. They would have had to travel by bus for about an hour. By air, tourists fly around traffic jams, saving a lot of time for checking into hotels and attending competitions. Aerotaxi will operate flights every 6 minutes. By the end of this year, officials have to choose a point in the city for the landing site. It will take another year and a half to build it. For the successful implementation of such a large-scale plan, air taxi should be made safe, reliable, and also combined with the existing infrastructure. If the technology proves to be effective even under the harsh loads of the Olympics, it will be possible to introduce it in other megacities around the planet. So far, Airbus is finalizing its aircraft. Thus, the AlbatrossOne UAV was equipped with a structurally new wing. A special hinge inside it reduces turbulence, and also increases the lift of the aircraft.
