Dubai will soon get flying taxis according to the city's Road and Transport Authority (RTA), which plans to start flying passengers across the city in July, as envisioned in this rendering.
The driverless passenger drones, called Ehang 184, can carry one person and a small suitcase.
Powered by eight propellers, the drone will cruise at around 60 kilometers per hour.
The so-called Autonomous Aerial Vehicle (AAV) has been seen hovering over the sand dunes at an airfield in Dubai during test flights this winter.
The model was on display at the World Government Summit 2017 in Dubai, where the partnership between the RTA and Chinese drone makers Ehang was announced.
The routes will be pre-programmed with set locations for pick up and landing, and monitored by a team on the ground.
Once inside, passengers will choose their destination on a touch-screen monitor.
When not in use the vehicle can fit snugly into a single car parking space.
