Delhi to Gurgaon in a Flash with Air Taxis in 7 Minutes!

Prepare for a swift journey from Central Delhi's Connaught Place to Gurugram in Haryana, as InterGlobe Enterprises, alongside US-based Archer Aviation, unveils plans for an innovative all-electric air taxi service set to launch by 2026. These electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft promise to ferry four passengers and a pilot, slashing travel time to a mere 7 minutes.

The Current Delhi-Gurugram Commute - Ride time and fare

Currently, traversing the 27-kilometer stretch from Central Delhi to Gurugram by road demands an hour's journey, subject to potential delays in heavy traffic. Uber and Ola fares typically range between Rs 500 to Rs 800 for this route. Alternatively, the Delhi Metro, while taking approximately 50 minutes, charges a mere Rs 50 for the same commute.

However, with the advent of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft capable of accommodating four passengers and a pilot, travel duration is set to shrink significantly. Anticipated costs for this futuristic mode of transportation could hover between Rs 2,000 to Rs 3,000 per passenger, providing a premium but rapid alternative to traditional means of transit.

Electric Air Taxi Solution Across India

Similar services will be launched in Mumbai and Bengaluru as well. Archer will supply 200 eVTOL aircraft for services in India. The 200 planes will cost around $1 billion.

The regulatory nod is expected next year. Archer Aviation Founder and CEO Adam Goldstein said talks are on with the US Federal Aviation Administration and the certification process is at an advanced stage. The US certification is expected next year and the DGCA will then be approached.
