The race for the skies is on


As champions of innovation, Alphera couldn’t help but notice the news that tech companies are competing to develop the first viable passenger-carrying sky taxis – with Dubai hoping to be the first city to have drone taxis in the air.


Whether driverless, or piloted, the taxis would revolutionise the way we move around already overcrowded city centres and would help free up the roads to make everyone’s commute a much more pleasurable experience.


With plans already underway about how to manage airspace, what’s the best way to power the drones and how much would a ride cost, it may well be sooner than you think that you’re flying across the city to your next big meeting.


At Alphera, we really like to support and acknowledge the innovation that is taking place across the entire automotive sector, and even further afield. In addition, we always try to explore and push new boundaries, as evidenced recently by the launch of our consumer-focused program, which places the customer at the forefront of delivering the very best in customer service. | Twitter: @AlpheraFS
