Lilium and Air-Dynamic announce deal for five aircraft
Lilium has announced an agreement with Air-Dynamic, a Switzerland-based private jet and helicopter company including deposit payments for delivery of up to five Lilium Jets.
Air-Dynamic will operate and manage the aircraft for its customers in Switzerland and Italy. The Lugano-based company has almost 20 years of experience in helicopter and jet charters and specialises in networked routes across Switzerland, Italy, Côte d’Azur and French Alps. Air Dynamic has a fleet of two new generation PC-12s based at Lugano airport and manages different jets and helicopters on behalf of private owners and AOC holders.
Raffaella Meledandri, CEO of Air-Dynamic said: “This partnership represents an important step for Air-Dynamic SA and the entire aviation industry. We are excited to work with Lilium to develop innovative and sustainable solutions for the future of aviation. The first project’s goal is to connect Lugano directly with Milan city centre and in parallel to establish a good connection in Italy for the most touristic destinations such as Lake Como and Capri.”
The partnership deepens Lilium’s reach into Europe’s premium travel market, according to the firm’s chief commercial officer Sebastien Borel. “We’re leveraging Air-Dynamic’s innovative and entrepreneurial approach to operating and managing private jets and helicopters in the region. The partnership fits well in our commercial first phase strategy to engage the premium segment with our impressive Lilium Pioneer Edition Jet,” he said.
Lilium is currently displaying its full-scale cabin mockup of the Lilium Jet pioneer at EBACE 2023 in Geneva. Find the German OEM at the Innovation Pavilion, Booth D32.
