This launch represents an important milestone for Ascent, as we expand to Latin America, starting with vibrant Chile. This market entry is the foundation stone of Ascent’s ambition in Latin America, the second world region with highest air mobility needs. Thanks to our business model we prove one flight at a time our unique ability to open new markets remotely at an unrivaled pace.
To make that happen, Ascent partners with best-in-class, safety vetted and leading helicopter operators such as Rotortec, leader in Chile in helicopter passenger transport. Thanks to these partnerships, we now seamlessly offer rideshare and private flights across Santiago and surrounding regions, providing airport transfers, on-demand air taxi and experiences of a new kind.
“We are proud to partner with Ascent to pioneer Air Mobility in Chile. With our growing fleet of helicopters, perfectly fit for the purpose of Air Mobility, this partnership will enable Rotortec to unlock a new demand and maximize the use of our assets.” says Francisco Fluxá Hernández, CEO of Rotortec.
Ascent’s users can now access their preferred destinations, such as weekend getaways, wineries, remote beaches, or mountains, in a matter of minutes, safely within a crowd-free environment.
With Ascent, air taxi users own their time accessing their flights on Ascent air mobility platform. Simply book on Ascent Chile and fly. With Ascent, in addition to safety, comfort and reliability, users fly with the peace of mind that their air mobility is made climate neutral as Ascent offsets its carbon emissions with United Nations certified projects.
To introduce the vertical transportation to the public, Ascent offers as well experiences and breathtaking scenic flights above Chilean natural marvels, like the Andes Mountains, lakes, coasts and active volcanoes.
We are excited to open this new chapter of Ascent, as it brings us one step closer to making air mobility the new normal. While democratizing air mobility and making it affordable for everyone is at the heart of our vision, we resolutely pursue our work of catalyzing the entry of all-electric aircraft while developing the market thanks to helicopters, seaplanes and planes today.
