Investors in eVTOL infrastructure (2/4): Brussels Airport
Brussels Airport Company
Brussels Airport’s skills in logistics have been underlined by its success in transporting nearly a billion Covid vaccine shots through its airport.
Its 2021 acquisition of a 50% stake in SkeyDrone, a provider of UTM (unmanned traffic management) services, from skeyes, Belgium’s state-owned air navigation and traffic provider, is expected to be the first of several strategic investments intended to defend and extend their technological edge.
“Brussels Airport’s investment in SkeyDrone is strategic and goes beyond investing in drone know-how and technology. It is an investment in co-creating the future of unmanned air traffic… we can fully explore, develop and commercialise drone management systems and drone services that can be used on a daily basis by clients in various industries.”
Arnaud Feist, CEO, Brussels Airport Company
