The world’s first flying taxi service is expected to become operational in the Swiss city of Geneva transporting passengers to neighboring towns.
Five of the taxis known as SeaBubbles will start the service from Lake Geneva in April, the vehicle’s creator Alain Thebault told the AFP. They will be able to transport four passengers plus a driver.
The electric-powered SeaBubble can float 70cm above the water, reaching a speed of 18 kilometers per hour. It makes contact with water via its four hydrofoils, which reduce resistance, and two small engines, powered by solar energy.
