Lilium Partners with Expliseat to Design eVTOL Seats


Lilium is working together with French manufacturer Expliseat to produce the passenger seats for the Lilium Jet.

Expliseat concentrates on creating lightweight and durable seating for aircraft. The company’s seats are about 35% lighter than the typical aviation seats made of aluminum.

“The Lilium Jet uses cutting-edge technology so it’s only right that we have the best partners who also challenge the way things are done. Expliseat’s expertise with lightweight and durable materials will help us reach weight and distance targets for commercialization, while ensuring a premium passenger experience,” states Martin Schuebel Senior Vice President Procurement at Lilium.

This also ensures that flying an aircraft is more efficient and sustainable. Expliseat is further working on making its products greener, by using recycled composites for its chairs.

Lilium recently appointed Klaus Roewe as its new CEO

and he will join on August 1st, 2022.
