Voom Helicopter Taxi App Plans Growth In Mexico City Written 25 April 2018

Reuters reports that Airbus subsidiary Voom, which operates a helicopter booking app, “expects its new Mexico City operations to capitalize on some of the worst traffic in the world to eclipse the growth it has seen in Brazil, the company’s chief executive said.” Voom began operations in Sao Paolo, Brazil, and Mexico City is the company’s second market. According to CEO Uma Subramanian, Voom has flown more than 4,000 customers in its first year and expects to surpass that in its first year of operation in Mexico. The company is looking at “entering Buenos Aires, Bogota, Guatemala City and populous Asian capitals next, Subramanian said.” The company also is developing unmanned electric helicopters in order to lower its fares and increase profits.
