Uber has announced Melbourne as the third city to pilot its Uber Air program.

Melbourne will join Dallas and Los Angeles in hosting test Uber Air flights from 2020, with plans for commercial operations to start from 2023, Uber said in a statement on Wednesday.

Regional general manager for Uber in Australia, New Zealand and North Asia Susan Anderson said Australian governments have adopted a “forward-looking” approach to ridesharing and future transport technology, which, coupled with Melbourne’s unique demographic and geospatial factors, make it the perfect third launch city.

“We will see other Australian cities following soon after,” she said.
