Ocean Flyer | CEO Shah Aslam's Keynote Speech at REGENT's Full-Scale Seaglider Unveiling Event

Ocean Flyer | CEO Shah Aslam's Keynote Speech at REGENT's Full-Scale Seaglider Unveiling Event

Our CEO Shah Aslam had the honour of delivering a keynote speech at REGENT’s unveiling event of the full-scale seaglider, held at their headquarters in Rhode Island, USA. Over the past few weeks, we have seen the devastating impacts of the weather in New Zealand. Communities have been disconnected due to flooding, landslides, collapsed bridges, and road closures. Climate change is here. We need bold solutions to reduce our carbon emissions and reach our goals of becoming carbon-neutral, while re-connecting our communities. At Ocean Flyer, we believe seagliders can play a pivotal role in the sustainable future of transportation. Seagliders will offer a fast, comfortable and affordable transport option, which is fully sustainable. The fully-electric nature of seagliders allows for greater efficiencies, and we’re excited for what this means for the future of regional travel in New Zealand. As Shah Aslam put it in his speech, “greater connectivity, generates greater productivity, which generates prosperity”. The unveiling of the full-scale seaglider is a testament to the years of research and development by Billy Thalheimer, Mike Klinker and the team at REGENT, which brings us one step closer to seeing Ocean Flyer seagliders operating around the coast of Aotearoa. Congratulations to REGENT on this huge achievement, and we’re excited to be bringing seagliders to the coastlines of New Zealand in just a couple of years!

Ocean Flyer | World Maritime Day 2022

Ocean Flyer | World Maritime Day 2022

Happy World Maritime Day 🌊❤️ The theme for World Maritime Day 2022 is 'New technologies for greener shipping' - reflecting the need to support a green transition of the maritime sector into a sustainable future. At Ocean Flyer, we believe seagliders are the future of sustainable maritime transportation. Earlier this year our CEO Shah Aslam announced a $700 million agreement with REGENT to purchase 25 seagliders which are set to be operating around the coast of New Zealand from 2025. Just last week, REGENT announced completing its maiden flight with the prototype, a huge milestone in bringing Aotearoa yet another step closer to enjoying zero-emission journeys on our blue highway, that connect our regions to our cities thanks to a new mode of transport. “Ocean Flyer will soon offer this fully electric mode of mass public transport and coastal shipping. The climate crisis has arrived. The need to accelerate emissions reduction gets more pressing every day. Ocean Flyer is proud to be taking the lead as the first seaglider-only transport business in the world. As always with initiatives like this, a Kiwi company is taking the lead in delivering sustainable, affordable, fast, and accessible transport." - Shah Aslam, CEO of Ocean Flyer.
