Olympians train rigorously to reach the world’s biggest games, the Olympics. It’s the responsibility of the host countries to give them an experience of a lifetime.

The next Olympics will happen in the Paris city of France and the preparations have already started, as it’s just three years away. To give Olympians a unique and eco-friendly experience, the Paris Olympics 2024 will witness Olympians flying in taxis from the airport to the village.

The organizer will introduce an electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft, which will reduce the travel time from 40 to 50 minutes by car to 15 minutes. The airport operator Groupe ADP, Paris metro and mass transit operator RATP Group and the Ile-de-France region of Paris will lead the project.

During the opening ceremony of the test center, Groupe ADP Chairman and CEO Augustin de Romanet said, “It will function as a concrete experiment to explore the field of possibilities of a decarbonized and innovative aviation, and to develop the low altitude aviation market [below 300 meters], which has been largely unexplored until now.”

That would indeed be a Harry Porter in real-life experience for the Olympic superheroes.
