Lilium and Atlantic Aviation have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on electrifying existing airport infrastructure to support regional air mobility across the US.

This agreement aims to ensure that current and future vertiports are compatible with the Lilium Jet electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. This will help establish a planned network to support Lilium Jet operations.

Indeed, Atlantic Aviation operates sites at more than 30 airport locations within Lilium’s planned launch markets in Florida, Southern California, the Northeast corridor, and Texas.

Throughout the partnership, Lilium and Atlantic will focus on infrastructure deployment and operations at existing and upcoming sites.

This planning will revolve around key factors such as aircraft flight paths, charging capabilities, passenger facilities and operations forecasting.

Sebastien Borel, Lilium’s Chief Commercial Officer said:

Our partnership with Atlantic Aviation is a critical step toward realising our vision for a sustainable and accessible mode of high-speed regional travel. Atlantic’s extensive presence across major US cities and expertise in ground infrastructure development and premier customer service will be invaluable in establishing a robust network that supports the Lilium Jet throughout the US.

Lilium’s approach to commercialisation focuses on manufacturing and selling the Lilium Jet to individuals and companies.

By supporting the aircraft’s smooth entry into service, Lilium’s collaboration with Atlantic will thus help increase the attractiveness of this model.

John Redcay, Chief Commercial and Sustainability Officer at Atlantic said:

Atlantic Aviation is eager to work alongside Lilium, a pioneer in the burgeoning eVTOL sector, to construct the necessary infrastructure for their regional air mobility service in the United States. This collaboration underscores our firm conviction in the transformative potential of eVTOL technology in reshaping regional travel, and we are dedicated to furnishing the technology-agnostic infrastructure and assistance required to bring this vision to fruition.
