A British company says it’s building the world’s first “vertiport” for electric aircraft in Singapore, an early step towards a global network for flying taxis. 

Essex-based Skyports Ltd. plans to show off the vertical take-off and landing station at Marina Bay during the Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress from Oct. 21-25. Germany’s Volocopter GmbH will bring along its electric aircraft for a demonstration flight.
