InterGlobe Enterprises plans to launch electric air taxi service in India in 2026

InterGlobe Enterprises, which backs India’s top airline IndiGo and Archer Aviation announced Thursday that they will start an all-electric air taxi service in India in 2026 that will be “cost-competitive” with on-road services.

Archer Aviation, backed by Chrysler-parent Stellantis, Boeing and United Airlines, makes electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, which have been touted as the future of urban air mobility.

The ‘Midnight’ e-aircraft can go up to 100 miles (161 kilometers) with 4 passengers and a pilot. The service will begin with 200 aircraft and start in Delhi, the country’s capital, Mumbai, the country’s financial capital and Bengaluru, known as India’s Silicon Valley.

The companies stated that a trip that takes 60 to 90 minutes by car in Delhi will take around 7 minutes in an air taxi.
