Global Facilities Management provider, Atalian Servest has been appointed by Urban-Air Port to provide a bundled soft services solution for Air One, the world’s first fully operational hub for electric take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.
Atalian Servest will provide security, cleaning, events stewarding and pest control at the Urban-Air Port global launch activity in Coventry. Held in partnership with Supernal, the launch event is a fully immersive experience where guests can tour the Air One vertiport and learn about the promise of sustainable Advanced Air Mobility.
Selected for its important geographic location in the UK, and its rich history in automobile and aerospace innovation, Coventry represented the ideal venue to envision a new era of mobility.
Awarded the contract due to its proven track record in delivering and managing regulated, high-risk and technically demanding environments, Atalian Servest services will be underpinned by technology, allowing the two organisations to enhance resilience and drive efficiencies. The sustainably led cleaning solution is supported by an impressive, start of the art ‘co-bot’, designed to clean high-footfall floor areas, allowing the workforce to focus on tasks that require an eye for detail.
Daniel Dickson, CEO Atalian Servest UK & Ireland commented: “We are proud to be working in partnership with Urban-Air Port during the launch of the Air One vertiport. Our innovative approach and heritage in the transport sector, coupled with our vision for innovation, makes us the ideal partner to establish what good looks like when it comes to FM solutions for Urban-Air Port.”
Duncan Hopkins, Head of Asset Management and Customer Experience, for Urban Airport added: “We are thrilled to be working with Atalian Servest and have developed a MOU to potentially work together on future projects as we expand our footprint. Urban-Air Port are planning to open 200 sites, worldwide, over the next five years and confirming a strategic FM provider for hard and soft services provision is key to our asset management strategy.”
