    Munich (ots/PRNewswire) -

    An independent expert jury has selected Airbus for the Innovation
    Award 2018. The jury concluded that the future of urban air mobility
    can only be addressed by comprehensive concepts rather than by
    individual aircraft.

    "Traffic jams, environmental pollution and noise emissions are the
    most important challenges in today's urban mobility. In 2050
    approximately 80% of the European population will live in urban
    areas. This year's AIRTEC focuses on 'Aerospace meets Automotive -
    Innovation in Mobility' and presents many important concepts for
    tomorrow's urban mobility. Against this background, the prize awarded
    this year by the MPC and PRIME Research for the most innovative urban
    mobility concept at AIRTEC is of particular importance," said Olaf
    Guennewig (SGS Fresenius) member of the jury.

    Airbus, with its on-demand helicopter booking platform, VOOM, is
    already offering an urban air mobility service in São Paulo and
    Mexico City and plans to further expand the service in 2019. VOOM
    will continue to lay the groundwork for the company's longer-term
    vision of urban mobility using electric vertical take-off and landing
    (eVTOL) vehicles. The company's work on eVTOL technical
    demonstrators, Vahana and CityAirbus, as well as on air traffic
    management solutions, underline the seriousness of Airbus' efforts.
    Ulrich Nies, Chairman MPC summarizes: "Airbus' investments in urban
    air mobility in Europe and around the globe show the seriousness with
    which Airbus seeks solution for our future mobility."

    According to Manfred Spaltenberger, member of the board of the
    German Institute for Inventions and member of the jury, innovations
    are the basis for prosperity, welfare and an improvement in the
    quality of life. New thinking and approaches for the global urban
    environment and the mobility of the future are urgently needed. The
    concepts and innovations of today's Innovation Award winner Airbus
    are a building block for this.

    During the handover of the award, Joerg Mueller, Head of
    Programmes and Strategy in Airbus' Urban Air Mobility (UAM)
    organization, said: "With the rapid advances in electrification,
    autonomy and connectivity, large scale urban mobility through a new
    class of air vehicles is becoming a real option. At Airbus, we are
    building the foundations to make urban air mobility a reality, in
    close cooperation with regulators, communities and partners."

    Bernd Hitzemann, sector lead Automotive Inisghts at PRIME Research
    adds: "The mobility of the future is electric, connected, shared, and
    the vertical take-off and landing technology 'VTOL' opens up the
    third dimension to new concepts and players. Vahana, CityAirbus and
    the Pop.Up Next concept prove the technology leadership of Airbus in
    'urban air mobility' and closely came ahead of the strong start-up
    competitors 'Lilium' and 'Volocopter'."

    The Innovation Award jury consists of experts from the Automotive
    and Aviation Industry. It is supported by the consulting firm PRIME
    Research, a Cision company.
