VoltAero Signs MoU with Swiss Company for 15 Cassio Aircraft

VoltAero has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Switzerland-based aviation company SKY2SHARE for the pre-order of 15 Cassio aircraft. 

Initially, VoltAero will deliver the five-seat Cassio 330, but there is a possibility that SKY2SHARE will integrate the six-seat Cassio 480 and 12-seat Cassio 600 into its fleet. 

Pre-orders for 15 aircraft were confirmed at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland. 

“Cassio is perfectly tailored for SKY2SHARE’s ambitious goal of providing productive and environmentally conscious mobility services that reduce business aviation’s environmental footprint,” Jean Botti, VoltAero’s CEO and Chief Technology Officer, said. 

Selim Franko, SKY2SHARE co-founder and CEO, echoed Botti’s sentiments, acknowledging that the Cassio aircraft will enable the company to offer a more sustainable means of air travel. 

“We are impressed with VoltAero’s progress in developing the Cassio aircraft family’s ‘clean sheet’ design, which offers the right solution for our economically viable and socially responsible services as a truly sustainable alternative to traditional business aviation,” Franko said. “We are thrilled that the Cassio family will allow us to radically reduce the environmental impact of our operations.”

Having signed the MoU with SKY2SHARE, VoltAero now has 218 orders and commitments in place for its Cassio product line. The deal also comes just a day after Kawasaki became a strategic investor in VoltAero, which is currently procuring funds in its Series B round.
