Lilium signs agreement with Air-Dynamic to serve Switzerland and Italy

In a momentous development that has the aviation industry on its toes, the skies of Switzerland and Italy are set to welcome the futuristic allure of Lilium Jets. The trailblazing eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) jet manufacturer Lilium has inked an agreement with Air-Dynamic SA, a renowned private jet and helicopter company based in Switzerland. This game-changing partnership puts into motion a plan for Air-Dynamic SA to operate and manage up to five Lilium Jets, their acquisition secured with pre-delivery payments.

Air-Dynamic SA, with its two-decade-long legacy of helming helicopter and jet charters, is already a strong advocate for electric aircraft. Their support further bolsters Lilium’s standing as an innovator in the industry. The company plans to deliver the premium ‘club configuration’ Lilium Jet, including the Lilium Pioneer Edition, to its customers in Switzerland and Italy, granting them early access to this revolution in air travel.

Lilium’s partnership with Air-Dynamic SA marks a strategic expansion of the jet maker’s footprint in the high-end European business travel and tourism market. The move seems to be perfectly in sync with Lilium’s commercial first phase strategy of capturing the premium segment with their remarkable Lilium Pioneer Edition Jet.

Air-Dynamic SA’s CEO, Raffaella Meledandri, and Lilium’s CCO, Sebastien Borel, both echoed sentiments of excitement and promise towards this symbiotic partnership. Their shared vision for the future involves using the Lilium Jet to connect Lugano directly with Milan City Center, along with bolstering connectivity to Italy’s prime touristic destinations such as Lake Como and Capri.

Lilium, with its mission of creating a sustainable and accessible mode of high-speed, regional transportation, has certainly achieved a significant milestone with this partnership. This leap forward aligns perfectly with their commitment to accelerating the decarbonization of air travel. For the aviation industry, this is a soaring testament to the relentless pursuit of innovation, sustainability, and unparalleled luxury. As we watch the skies, one thing is certain – the future of air travel is electric!
