United, Eve Deepen eVTOL Relationship Yesterday, Eve Air Mobility announced that commercial airline United Airlines has made a 15 million dollar investment in the company as well as a conditional purchase of as many as 400 Eve eVTOLs. 200 4-seat aircraft up front with deliveries starting in 2026. 200 options for the same urban electric aircraft are also included. United has been pushing its interest in eVTOL tech recently. Last month, United gave a $10 million deposit to a California-based eVTOL company for 100 aircraft. It is not by accident, more by design. United was the first major U.S. airline to create a corporate venture fund, United Airlines Ventures (UAV), designed to support the company’s 100% green commitment to reach net zero emissions by 2050 without the use of traditional offsets. Through UAV, United has led the industry in investments in eVTOL and electric aircraft, hydrogen fuel cell engines, and sustainable aviation fuel.
