Urbanization has become a common phenomenon is most societies. Growth of industries has contributed to the growth of cities and this has, undeniably, led to significant changes to take place. Chief among the problems is our present-time unbearable transportation conditions.

To encounter this, Airbus Group experts are looking skywards to develop radical concepts that will relieve urban congestion. A3, the company’s innovation outpost, will play a major role in realizing this vision.
