HIGHLIGHTING A FLYING TAXI MEANT TO REDUCE CARBON EMISSION IN DUBAI

Foster + Partners, a UK architecture firm, proposes a "vertiport" terminal for vertical take-off and landing vehicles like air taxis to connect Dubai's top destinations with high-speed, zero-emissions transit. Foster + Partners says Dubai's ruler, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, approved the design. It would connect to Dubai International Airport (DXB) and other transport hubs. “We are delighted to have developed a vertiport concept for the emerging AAM industry, which will transform the way people travel in Dubai,” said Foster + Partners studio director David Summerfield in the press statement.
“To provide seamless, sustainable travel across the city for international and domestic passengers,” the proposed vertiport would link DXB and the Dubai Metro.

Foster + Partners designed the terminal raised for takeoff and landing. The building wraps around the airfield, connecting the arrival and departure lounges and providing excellent views of the planes and city.
