The main goal of the business partnership is to generate new business opportunities and boost the growth of the advanced air mobility ecosystem.

As part of the agreement, the two companies will share information and discuss routes, cabin configurations, and customer experience to optimize end-customer satisfaction. The companies will also look for potential opportunities in the advanced air mobility business to attain mutual benefits and shared growth.

Braden Kim, CEO of Plana, says: “We are excited to improve the satisfaction of our future passengers based on the infrastructure and data accumulated by Moviation.

“We hope that this MOU will help us expand the domestic AAM market.”
