Electric aircraft startup Wright Electric aims to carry passengers on battery-powered flights within the next 20 years. Now, business travelers in the Middle East may soon be able to partake in the company’s aggressive flight plans.

Flight support company Jetex recently announced a new partnership with Los Angeles-based Wright Electric. The companies have committed to flying electric private planes on short 300-mile or shorter trips from cities like Dubai, Muscat, Malaga, and Casablanca — all on a single charge. 

The only catch: The first such flight may be as far as 10 years away.
