Halo becomes first global provider for private urban air mobility with 200 eVTOL aircraft order from Embraer’s Eve Urban Air Mobility Solutions


Halo, the first global provider for private urban air mobility, has placed a firm order of 200 Eve Urban Air Mobility vehicles, making it the launch customer for this aircraft. The electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft have an expected delivery date in 2026. One hundred of the vehicles will be used for operations in the United States and 100 will operate in the United Kingdom.

Halo becomes Eve’s launch partner in building the world’s first comprehensive urban air mobility system. The order establishes Eve, an independent company formed by Embraer S.A., as the leader in a global eVTOL market that is growing rapidly in response to enthusiasm around sustainability and vertical mobility.

In addition, Halo announced the alignment of U.K.-based Halo Aviation Ltd. (Halo) and U.S.-based Associated Aircraft Group (AAG) under the Halo brand. Both companies had been acquired earlier this year by OneSky Flight, a member of the Directional Aviation family. The alignment ensures consistent service for Halo’s clients travelling in two of the world’s leading global centres of business. In addition, Halo will provide streamlined experiences for world-travelling clients of sister companies in the Directional Aviation family of brands: Flexjet, Sentient Jet, PrivateFly and FXAIR.

Directional Aviation’s OneSky Flight acquires U.K.-based helicopter travel provider Halo Aviation

Directional Aviation’s OneSky Flight, acquires U.K.-based helicopter travel provider Halo Aviation

Halo Aviation

Luxury fractional jet provider Flexjet and jet card pioneer Sentient Jet,  have a new sister company, Halo Aviation Ltd. -  a leading provider of helicopter transportation services in the United Kingdom. 

Earlier this year the group purchased Associated Aircraft Group (AAG), a provider of executive Sikorsky helicopter services in the Northeastern United States. These moves position Flexjet, Sentient Jet and their sister companies, FXAIR and PrivateFly, on-demand jet charter providers in both the U.S. and Europe, to become leaders in vertical flight, further expanding their offerings and global operations.

Halo and AAG, both manage fleets of some of the finest helicopters in the world and are leading providers of vertical lift and urban mobility services in their respective nations. This move will inject a new group of customers from Flexjet, the second-largest fractional jet provider in the world, and Sentient Jet, which has 8,000 active jet cardholders and will pave the way for a unique end-to-end travel solution not offered by any other provider. The structure of these companies and their relationships to each other will offer differentiators in the market that other brands will not be able to duplicate – from the safety of flying managed fleets to the packaging of end-to-end flight solutions – these acquisitions will rebrand what the private jet traveller will want in a provider.
