A new airport is opening in the United Kingdom (UK) this year, and this one is built not for planes, but for drones and even flying cars.
The new Urban Air-Port, which is located in Coventry, UK, will be the first of its kind in the world and is expected to complete construction in November.
The new airport is expected to showcase flying cars and drones down the road, as well as collaborate on initiatives to tackle road congestion and pollution.
While the world of flying cars is still a distant future, drones are becoming more mainstream today.
In fact, drones are being used for all kinds of applications, ranging from logistics to photography, and even security surveillance.
In a statement with the media, Urban Air-Port founder, Ricky Sandhu, mentioned that despite lots of progress on the development of flying cars, there is still limited on-ground infrastructure in place.
“You can’t get off the train or get on the train unless you get to the train station so that supporting ground infrastructure is absolutely key,” mentioned Ricky Sandhu, founder of Urban Air-Port
