It all looks very futuristic. Aircraft maker Airbus and the Italian auto-designer Italdesign have joined forces to create a new flying car concept called Pop.Up. Will it ever happen? What do you think?
The aerospace giant plans to cut more than three thousand jobs as it aims to scale back production of its troubled A380 superjumbo and A400M military transporter — Europe's biggest civil and military plane projects.
Airbus has unveiled a conceptual flying car called Pop.Up, showcasing its futuristic vision of how to fly over crowded city streets. Mathias Thomsen, Airbus' manager of urban air mobility, talks to DW about the project.
The Airbus chief executive has said the company's troubled military aircraft program could cost the European aerospace firm billions of euros extra unless its customers agree to reduce damages for delays.
Air travel is bad for the climate - but it doesn't have to be. Climate-friendly flight routes and renewable jet fuel could make flying in planes way more environmentally friendly - this would just need to be implemented.
