Uber plans to start electric flying-taxi services in Melbourne from 2023, the ride-sharing company’s first overseas market for the programme.

Test flights of Uber Air, as the company calls it, will start in the Australian city from 2020, Uber said in a statement on Wednesday. Melbourne joins Dallas and Los Angeles as pilot locations for the services.

According to the company’s description of Uber Air, passengers will be able to catch flights from building tops in battery-powered aircraft that land and take off like conventional helicopters.
