United Airlines Announces Air Taxi Route in Chicago



Travelers between Chicago O’Hare Airport and the city will soon be able to reduce their commute time to 10 minutes.
United Airlines and Archer Aviation have joined forces to start an air taxi service between Chicago’s city center and O’Hare International Airport and plan to begin services in 2025. The two companies will utilize Archer’s electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft as part of their urban air mobility (UAM) network buildout. According to, the route can currently take more than an hour during peak time, but following the air taxi’s introduction, the commute will take just 10 minutes.
“Technological innovation thrives here in Chicago, and this venture between Archer and United is yet another example of this strength,” said Chicago Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot in a press release. “This exciting new technology will further decarbonize our means of transportation, taking us another step forward in our fight against climate change. I’m pleased that Chicago residents will be among the first in the nation to experience this innovative, convenient form of travel.”
