Melbourne, Florida, USA – December 21, 2021
Eve Air Mobility, an Embraer company, and Azorra, a longstanding partner and lessor of Embraer aircraft, signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to order up to 200 of Eve’s electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. This collaboration, in addition to the investor partnership announced today, confirms Azorra and Eve’s joint commitment to provide accessible transportation and infrastructure solutions for early adopters of the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) industry.
Eve’s strategic partnership with Azorra will focus on establishing a base of operators that plan for scheduled UAM missions and help to establish the requisite infrastructure needed to enable eVTOL flights around the world.
Azorra’s seasoned management team and relationship-driven business model provides the ideal platform to collaborate with Eve to support customer needs and develop leasing solutions.
“Azorra is excited to partner with Eve and be on the forefront of the eVTOL revolution. The practicality of Eve’s design, coupled with Embraer’s 50+ year proven track record of developing safe and reliable aircraft will position Eve well for a successful product launch,” said Ron Baur, President of Azorra.
In addition to Azorra’s order for up to 200 aircraft, the LOI creates an opportunity for both teams, together with future UAM operators, to propose new procedures and frameworks to enable the entire Urban Air Mobility ecosystem to complement Eve’s agnostic product and service portfolio.
“Today almost half of commercial aircraft are leased and we believe leasing companies will also play an active role in Urban Air Mobility, allowing operators to remain asset light. Azorra has a history of helping markets grow and we are excited to join them in this new frontier for aviation,” said Andre Stein, co-CEO of Eve.
Azorra is a relationship-driven commercial aircraft lessor, providing lease, financing, and asset management solutions with a focus on regional, crossover and small narrowbody aircraft. Azorra’s team is led by industry veterans with a shared history of success and a wealth of experience in aircraft leasing. The company is headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and has an office in Dublin, Ireland.
