Virgin Hyperloop made history today as the first passengers successfully traveled in a Hyperloop pod.

The significant investment made by Dubai-based DP World, the leading global provider of smart logistics solutions, in the research and development of hyperloop technology, has played an instrumental role in today’s milestone.

Mr Giegel and Sara Luchian, director of passenger experience, were the first two people to climb on board the hyperloop.

This historic testing milestone, combined with the advancements at the Hyperloop Certification Centre, will pave the way for the certification of hyperloop systems around the world — a key step towards commercial projects, including those in Saudi Arabia and UAE.
