Ascent is operational in Southeast Asia. Awaiting for eVTOLs, Ascent makes use of helicopters and planes today. “Ascent is one of the greatest players of Urban Air Mobility in the Asia Pacific and its strong presence in the. region makes it an ideal partner for Eve’s operations. The region holds a massive demand for transportation disruption that can be filled with our low-emission aircraft. This is the right recipe for sustainable growth,” said Andre Stein, President & CEO of Eve. Eve plans to deploy up to 100 aircraft to be marketed by Ascent on its current and future routes.
