"An agreement is being signed on establishing a city air mobility system," the announcer said at the signing ceremony.
Director General of BP Technologies Alexander Okhonko and Director for Business Development at Yandex.Taxi Alexey Fedotov signed the agreement.
Test air taxi flights are scheduled to begin next year within the Moscow Ring Road and in the suburbs of Moscow, Okhonko said.
"Next year, test flights will begin in the suburbs (of Moscow - TASS) and within the Moscow Ring Road zone.
