The concept of Urban Air Mobility (UAM), combined with technological development, has driven the aviation industry towards the development of an urban air transport system, including the construction of a new class of aerial vehicles for take-off and vertical landing loaded with propulsion electric aircraft (eVTOL). The development of this new air modal appears as a future transport alternative, being considered as a solution to the problems of the long time spent in transit by passengers using land transport. For market studies, its main initial use case is the transport of passengers to/from or between airports, and the demand for passenger transport is concentrated in central areas of cities. Given the scenario presented, the hypothesis of this work is based on the assertion that the UAM will be a viable means of transport option due to its value proposition of offering time savings and guaranteed access to users. The main objective of this study is to calculate the travel time by air modal, through a model implemented in a Geographic Information System (GIS). The travel time by air and land modal, using real travel data, between the origin of the passengers and the airports located within the Metropolitan Region of São Paulo are compared. The expected result is to measure the time gain and identify the locations where passengers would benefit from using eVTOL as a means of urban transport.
