Lilium, developer of the all-electric vertical take-off and landing (“eVTOL”) jet, has signed an agreement with Helity Copter Airlines (“Helity”) to develop an eVTOL network in Andalusia. Under the agreement, Helity intends to initially purchase five (5) Lilium Jets to provide premium and business charter flights to its customers.
In a press release issued today the company says “Helity offers helicopter shuttle flights between Ceuta, Algeciras, and Málaga as well as private charter flights in southern Spain. With approximately 300,000 passengers transported to date between Ceuta and the Spanish peninsula, Helity provides a critical transportation service to its customers and the region. The Lilium Jet, with its premium cabin, expected physical range of 250 km, and anticipated performance capabilities in various weather conditions, is well suited to meet the transportation needs of the region.
“Lilium is currently conducting Flight Tests with its 5th generation technology demonstrator at the ATLAS Flight Test Center in Villacarrillo (Jaen), Spain.”
The proposed arrangement between Helity and Lilium is subject to the parties finalizing commercial terms and entering into definitive agreements with respect thereto, and the satisfaction of certain conditions says the company.
