JetSetGo India orders 50 Overair eVTOL aircraft to support passenger transport

Overair (USA), an emerging global leader in advanced air mobility (AAM) and a developer of all-electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, announced that it has received a letter of intent from JetSetGo, India’s largest private jet provider, for the purchase of 50 Butterfly eVTOL aircraft. Overair is the only eVTOL manufacturer selected for JetSetGo’s initial $1.3 billion AAM investment.

In addition to aircraft, Overair will support JetSetGo’s upcoming AAM ecosystem with infrastructure advisement, pilot training, infrastructure and software integration, operational guidance, and vertiport software integration.

Announced alongside deals with Horizon Aircraft and during Wings India 2024, the largest civil aviation event in Asia at Begumpet airport in Hyderabad, Telangana, Kanika Tekriwal, JetSetGo’s CEO and co-founder, stated, “I am very excited about the partnerships we are building today and the scale of the vision these agreements represent. India’s geography and demographics make it an ideal launch market for AAM. Our partnership with these three leading innovators will introduce unique technologies like ‘blown lift’ and ‘fan-in-wing’ lift systems, hybrid and electric propulsion, and super-quiet optimal speed tilt rotors to India. We want to lead the transformation of urban and regional connectivity and believe we have the right partners and technologies to make this vision a reality. The scale of the agreements we’ve signed this week emphasise the scale of our ambition and belief in these new technologies.”
