Electric aircraft manufacturer, Eviation Aircraft has announced that EVIA AERO has signed a letter of intent (LOI) to purchase 25 all-electric commuter Alice aircraft as part of its intention to develop a more sustainable regional airline.
The airline intends to operate with Alice as its primary aircraft for regional travel within Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Austria and the Netherlands.
This deal follows Eviation’s first flight of the Eviation Alice on 27 September 2022.
The Eviation Alice is a nine-passenger electric aircraft that uses magniX’s electric propulsion system. It is currently the only flight-proven all-electric commuter aircraft of this size.
“As an early adopter of all-electric air travel and sustainable technologies, EVIA AERO shares Eviation’s dedication to social responsibility. Eviation’s Alice promises to transform commuting by air, across Europe. Not only green and clean, but elegantly designed, and providing a smoother, quieter in-flight experience, the Alice will offer EVIA AERO passengers a new way to fly.”
Alice produces zero carbon emissions and is significantly cheaper to operate per flight hour compared to light jets. It therefore has the potential to make air travel more financially feasible and more sustainable for flights covering distances of up to 250 nautical miles (290 miles | 460 kilometres).
EVIA AERO will focus on developing the entire electric aviation ecosystem, from electricity generation to flight operations. This will include generating electricity regionally through photovoltaic power plants.
The German-based company aims to improve the carbon footprint of airport infrastructure, and re-energise less frequented routes, by enabling air travel that is scalable, sustainable and economically viable.
“Together with Eviation, a pioneer of electric flight, we will introduce a fleet of zero-emission aircraft that will transform the way we experience regional travel in Europe. We are deeply committed to holistically transforming the aviation industry by implementing a complete cycle of local energy generation, storage, and flight operations.”
