Lilium has signed a memorandum of understanding with US aviation service provider Atlantic Aviation to "ensure seamless compatibility between the Lilium Jet and Atlantic's network of aviation assets across North America." It will allow operations at current and future locations.

Atlantic Aviation operates more than 30 airport locations in Lilium’s targeted launch markets in Florida, Southern California, the northeast of the US, and Texas. In January, the company announced that it would install charging infrastructure for electric aircraft at all of its locations – at the time, in cooperation with VTOL start-ups such as Joby Aviation and Archer.

The agreement will ensure that the two companies’ infrastructure is compatible and as similar as possible regarding the passenger experience. According to Lilium, joint strategic planning will include “aircraft flight paths, charging capabilities, passenger facilities, operations forecasting, and more. This comprehensive approach will ensure Lilium Jet operators have access to strategic points within Atlantic’s network of aviation facilities, working to both optimise the passenger experience and usher in a new era of air travel.”

The passenger experience will also be optimised. Lilium wants to sell its Lilium Jet to “various individuals and companies for private, premium, and shuttle operations and thereafter providing aftermarket support and services.” However, it also requires a certain compatible airport infrastructure to make the Lilium Jet attractive to these target groups in the first place.

“Our partnership with Atlantic Aviation is a critical step toward realising our vision for a sustainable and accessible mode of high-speed regional travel,” says Lilium’s Chief Commercial Officer Sebastien Borel. “Atlantic’s extensive presence across major U.S. 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.” 

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,” says John Redcay, Chief Commercial and Sustainability Officer at Atlantic. “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.”,
