Moove launches AAM trip simulator


French startup Moove has launched a multimodal portal it plans to offer to AAM operators and airports as a SaaS (Software as a service).

The platform allows stakeholders and future passengers to visualise flights, assessing benefits in travel time savings and reductions in CO2 emissions. Moove designed its planning portal to allow all operators to integrate it on their own website. As VTOL and STOL manufacturers move into the flight test phase, the sector will begin looking at what benefits those aircraft can bring to travel, it said.

Arthur Ingles, Moove’s founder, said: “In the future, with shorter distances aerial travel, competitiveness with ground transportation will be at the core of passenger’s decision while environmental footprint would need to be demonstrated each time they want to fly.”

Sales integration will be key for a new scale of operations. Those more accessible and last-minute solutions will require a radical shift in the on demand value chain, said Ingles. Reducing the book-to-fly time lapse while allowing a robust distribution system will be mandatory to reach out to a larger number of passengers.

“Those will be far from imagining what the third dimension brings and Moove will support operators to reach out to the largest audience possible,” added Ingles. “Available also to airports and vertiports to highlight to their community all the possibilities of an electric take-off nearby, Moove technology will showcase how these low-emission solutions can support economic growth regionally.”
