AirAsia, Skyports Consider Malaysian Airports for Flying Taxis

AirAsia Aviation Group Ltd. and the UK’s Skyports Ltd. will jointly explore building landing sites for flying taxis in Malaysia, as tycoon Tony Fernandes looks to expand into the urban air mobility business.

Capital A Bhd.’s budget carrier signed an agreement with Skyports to study ground infrastructure and scout potential sites for vertical take-off and landing stations, known as vertiports. The one-year pact will initially focus on building facilities in Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur, the companies said in a statement Thursday.
