Lilium Expands Footprint into UK with eVolare Partnership

German aerospace company Lilium has signed an agreement with eVolare, which will see one of the United Kingdom’s largest helicopter and private jet operators purchase 10 Lilium Pioneer Edition Jets.

The partnership, which was announced on November 5, will see eVolare become Lilium’s lead partner and launch operator in the UK for sales of the Lilium Jet to private individuals, also comes with the option to purchase 10 additional Lilium aircraft. It also marks Lilium’s entrance into the UK and will enable Lilium to leverage eVolare’s aviation network within the UK.

The Lilium Pioneer Edition Jet, which also launched on November 5, comes with customizable options for cabin configuration and custom fabrics and materials.

EVolare will ensure safe and reliable operations of Lilium’s aircraft from its Oxford base by running a maintenance service center and investing in landing infrastructure for Lilium’s UK network.

“The revolutionary technology of the Lilium Pioneer Edition Jet coupled with its unique, premium cabin, made it a natural choice for us when looking to meet the future demands of an environmental conscious market,” said Dustin Dryden, Founder of eVolare said. “For all our customers, we can offer point-to-point time-saving travels in a sustainable, safe manner while introducing some incredibly exciting innovation to the UK market.”

“We are delighted to launch our Lilium Pioneer Edition Jet with eVolare. Not only is the demand for sustainable regional air mobility in London high but eVolare’s experience serving customers with business jets and helicopters operations is a great fit to our commercial first phase: getting the premium segment to adopt our aircraft while preparing the entire ecosystem for a larger market,” said Klaus Roewe, Chief Executive Officer of Lilium. “eVolare’s visionary approach to sustainable air mobility also makes them the perfect partner for the United Kingdom.”
