Uber might be facing a severe issue in London and putting all its efforts to keep things good in Brazil, but it seems that these problems are not holding company's future plans. On Tuesday, Jeff Holden the chief product officer at Uber announced the partnership of the company with NASA at Web Summit, a technology conference held in Lisbon by Uber Technologies. Holden said Uber has joined hands with NASA to collectively work for building an air traffic management system for its flying taxi in the future.

In April, the tech company announced its plans regarding the flying Uber taxi service named UberAIR in some of the cities across the world. However, the flying taxi fleets won't be available soon as company mentioned that it's planning for the demonstration on the flying car network in Dallas, Dubai and Los Angeles by 2020.

In order to turn the idea of Air Taxi into a reality, Uber Technologies has partnered with the NASA. Under the act of partnership, NASA will help Uber to ensure its dream to touch the sky. Uber’s partnership is carried out to in order to sign NASA’s Space Act Agreement, which allows the NASA to ensure “safe and efficient operations" of the taxis and unmanned small aerials system flying at lower altitudes. Uber previously shared that the company has the agreements to work with many other aviation companies, however, its partnership with a federal US agency is the most authentic proof ever.

With this latest step, Uber has unlocked the way for future transportation mode which can solve acute traffic problems. Los Angeles will act as the perfect testing place for the flying Uber Taxi with its unimaginable traffic.”These are exactly the kind of partners we need to make uberAIR a reality," said Holden. The flying vehicles could prove as substantial support to the big and populated cities facing daily traffic problems. For an idea, Uber plans a trip from the Los Angeles airport to the Staples Center during the peak traffic hours and Air Taxi will take only 30 minutes instead of 1 hour 20 minutes taken by car to cover the distance. The UberAIR ride in the flying taxi will cost almost similar to its UberX service to the riders according to the company.
