REGENT has signed a deal with Surf Air Mobility to establish a base for seaglider operations in the Miami area.
It is understood that the base will be built by 2027, with aircraft providing routes from the base to the likes of Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach and the Caribbean Islands.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
REGENT Expands Seaglider Presence to Miami With Surf Air…
REGENT believes that these sorts of operations from the Miami area could service as many as 1.5 million passengers annually, from PortMiami as well as the main international airport.
Stan Little, the CEO of Surf Air Mobility commented on this deal for the Miami area:
“REGENT seagliders are a great solution to the growing transportation needs of residents and visitors in Miami and South Florida”.
“By leveraging our platform at Surf Air to bring new, electrified transportation to market, we believe REGENT seagliders can unlock new routes along Florida’s coastal corridors that complement our existing service networks and further our commitment to operating an electrified fleet.”
Adding to this was Billy Thalheimer, the co-founder & CEO of REGENT:
“We’re thrilled to have Surf Air as our premier operating partner in Miami and South Florida”.
“Our shared vision for sustainable transportation is equally matched by the forward-thinking public leaders and infrastructure providers in Miami working to accelerate the adoption of innovative and environmentally friendly transportation technologies like seagliders.”
All eyes will be on both companies to see what the operations from there will look like going into the future.
