Major events like the Olympics can boost a country and city’s tourism considerably. However, it can also create problems such as traffic congestion due to the fact that there are now more people in an area than normal. However, the good news for those planning to go to the 2024 Olympic games in Paris, how does the idea of a flying taxi sound?

This is because during the Paris Air Show, Aeroports de Paris (ADP), Airbus and the RATP regional transport have proposed the idea of using flying taxis to take visitors from the Charles de Gaulle Airport to the city. This isn’t to say that it is a guarantee that it will happen as there will be several hurdles that need to be overcome.

For example, the groups will need to ensure that these taxis are safe enough to fly from the airport to the city and also if they have enough battery for them to fly to their destinations. It also needs to be compliant with existing regulations and also infrastructure. However, given that we’re about 5 years away from the 2024 Olympics, we suppose that does give these organizations enough time to sort this out.

Whether or not it will be successful remains to be seen, but the concept of flying taxis aren’t new and where companies such as Uber envision it become a reality in the next 5-10 years.
