The first agreement announced by Eve Air Mobility was signed on Tuesday 20 June 2023 with regional aircraft operator Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) which will purchase 15 eVTOLs, plus an optional 15 to be leased to fleet operators.

Norman CT Liu, President and CEO of NAC, said: “We are delighted to have signed this letter of intent with Eve. This is an important step in our ESG strategy and we look forward to working with Eve to bring these innovative alternative transport solutions to market.”

Following NAC's announcement, Eve has confirmed the extension of its partnership with Widerøe Zero, a company that aims to reshape the aviation industry. The agreement involves up to 50 eVTOLs, a package of service and operation solutions, as well as the implementation of the Eve software solution by urban air traffic management (Urban ATM)

"This new partnership builds on a previous memorandum of understanding signed between Eve and Widerøe Zero in 2021 at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), which aimed to develop eVTOL operations in Scandinavia," said Andre Stein, co- CEO of Eve. "This additional letter of intent reinforces our commitment to introduce sustainable, safe and affordable urban air travel to the region." 

Finally, Eve and Voar Aviation, a general aviation services company, signed an LOI to evaluate the sale and purchase of 70 eVTOL aircraft to be operated at multiple locations in Brazil. 

Under the terms of the agreement, the companies will also explore a potential partnership where Voar will benefit from Eve's Urban Air Mobility (UAM) agnostic service and operation solutions. This potential eVTOL sale is included in Eve's current order backlog of up to 2.770 eVTOLs. 

Voar aims to operate in major metropolitan areas and popular tourist destinations such as Sao Paulo, Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Goiania, Vitoria, Florianopolis, Camboriu, Fortaleza, Natal, Recife and Salvador. 

Meanwhile, Alessandra Abrão, CEO of Voar, added: "This partnership reinforces the fact that Voar is ready to open the doors of future air mobility and contribute the necessary infrastructure to operate this new mode of transport."
