Air taxis in UAE starting 2026: GAL AMMROC, Archer Aviation sign deal at Dubai Airshow

GAL AMMROC and Archer Aviation have signed a deal at the Dubai Airshow to launch an air taxi service in the UAE and the region starting in 2026.

The Memorandum of Understanding between the two companies affirms a joint effort to launch an electric air taxi service utilizing Archer’s Midnight eVTOL aircraft, which is on display at the Dubai Airshow, to the UAE and the region.

“We’re looking forward to bringing urban air mobility to the UAE, our first announced international market outside of the United States. Our partnership with GAL AMMROC will help us to realize the vision of welcoming all-electric, commercialized air transport to Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the coming years,” said Adam Goldstein, CEO of Archer.

Archer’s goal is to replace 60-minute to 90-minute commutes by car with estimated 10-minute to 20-minute electric air taxi flights that are safe, sustainable, low noise, and cost-competitive.

Archer’s Midnight is a piloted, four-passenger aircraft designed to perform rapid back-to-back flights with minimal charge time between flights. GAL AMMROC is working alongside the California-based aviation company to develop support services for Midnight’s operations and assist the approach and identification of key opportunities.
