Lufthansa Group and Lilium sign MoU for eVTOL requirements

Lilium and the Lufthansa Group signed an MoU to review airspace, infrastructure, maintenance, flight operations, and additional eVTOL specifications.

Lilium and the Lufthansa Group signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in order to explore a strategic partnership on the operation of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft in Europe. The companies aim to investigate innovative opportunities in the aviation industry, addressing topics like crewing and flight training, future aircraft maintenance, and ground and flight operations.

In the event of a potential strategic alliance, both businesses wish to assess the potential for working together with regional partners and other parties, such as airports, on projects like vertiport development, airspace integration, and the specification of necessary operational procedures. Collaboration to collaboratively mould Advanced Air Mobility’s future

Dr. Detlef Kayser, Member of Executive Board, responsible for Fleet & Technologythe Lufthansa Group said, “Innovation is part of our DNA. The Lufthansa Group aspires to be a global leader in the integration of state-of-the-art products and processes. We want to develop aviation further and drive the transformation of the industry. This Memorandum of Understanding with Lilium will make an important contribution to this. Only with innovation, courage and determination can we, as an industry, make aviation more sustainable and master the challenges of the future.”

The company Lilium announced that the Lilium Jet is now being produced. Based on internal projections from Lilium, the European market is anticipated to meet approximately 9,200 eVTOL aircraft demand by 2035.

Klaus Roewe, CEO of Lilium said, “We are delighted that the Lufthansa Group has decided to cooperate with us to jointly advance in the future of flying. The Lufthansa Group has been at the forefront of some of Europe’s most important aviation initiatives, especially in the area of environmental sustainability. We are thrilled to explore opportunities on bringing eVTOL flights to Lufthansa Group customers.” 

The most recent aircraft purchases made by the Lufthansa Group have fuel consumption and CO2 emissions that are up to 30% less than those of earlier models. As it moves towards becoming carbon-neutral by 2050, the Lufthansa Group wants to reduce its net carbon emissions in half by 2030.
