The partnership will allow the two companies to explore UAV cargo deliveries

Odys Aviation, a sustainable aviation company building hybrid-electric vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft and Aramex recently announced a partnership to develop cargo operations and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) cargo deliveries in the UAE, Oman and further afield in the region.

Odys Aviation’s state-of-the-art aircraft, designed in multiple configurations for cargo, will be capable of delivering all-electric propulsion for distances up to 320 kilometers and will offer a hybrid-electric range of more than 1,200 kilometers. As a result, flights operated via these aircraft have the potential to reduce carbon emissions on pan-GCC flights by up to 76 per cent and provide a zero-carbon air cargo alternative for routes across the UAE, Oman and beyond.

Collaboration

Under the terms of the partnership, Odys Aviation and Aramex intend to collaborate on the development of autonomous logistics programs which will ultimately introduce cargo flights leveraging Odys Aviation’ cargo aircraft and Aramex’s fleet management capabilities.

“Our partnership with Aramex signals a steadfast commitment to launching a new generation of VTOL aircraft and we are grateful to be working with the future-focused team at Aramex to bring our vision to reality,” affirmed James Dorris, Co-Founder and CEO, Odys Aviation.

Logistics solutions

“This collaboration aligns perfectly with Aramex’s commitment to delivering innovative and environmentally friendly logistics solutions, along with our net-zero commitments,” remarked Alaa Saoudi, Chief Operating Officer–Express, Aramex.

“We look forward to partnering with Odys Aviation and deploying long range VTOL crafts, which shall drive us further towards our sustainability and Innovation targets,” remarked Angad Singh, Global Director-Innovation, Aramex.
