Lilium, developer of the first all-electric vertical take-off and landing (“eVTOL”) jet, has announced a partnership with GlobeAir. Under the agreement, GlobeAir says it intends to purchase 12 Lilium Jets to provide premium and business eVTOL flights to its customer base in the French Riviera and Italy.
A press release issued by the two companies says “GlobeAir is a European private jet operator offering on demand charter services to over 900 airports. GlobeAir is renowned for its innovative leveraging of data analytics for the optimization of operations, pricing and empty legs to benefit its discerning end customers.
“The sustainable Lilium Jet will complement GlobeAir’s current offerings in the French Riviera and Italy with a first and last mile service. Enabling considerable time savings for customers, the partnership will exemplify the all-in-one travel experience GlobeAir specializes in. With high demand for a sustainable, efficient and flexible mode of transport, Italy and southern France also offers many opportunities for point-to-point travels where travel time can be significantly reduced, and vertical landing is required.”
