eVolare, a subsidiary of UK-based operator Volare Aviation, has placed a firm commitment for 10 Lilium Pioneer Edition Jets with an option to reserve an additional 10 units.

eVolare will be Lilium’s lead partner and launch operator in the UK for sales of the Lilium Jet to private individuals, while Lilium will benefit from eVolare’s extensive expertise within the UK aviation network and its premium market to manage the jets in the UK. In addition, eVolare will provide reliable operation of Lilium’s aircraft from London Oxford, running a maintenance service centre and investing in landing infrastructure for a UK network.

The Lilium Pioneer Edition Jet was formally launched on the same day as the commitment was placed and comes with a compelling service, support and training package, as well as customisable options for the cabin configuration and exclusive fabrics and materials. The agreement between the two companies will provide an opportunity for customers that regularly travel between locations in the UK to be part of an exclusive group of early adopters that can experience the future of sustainable regional air mobility.

eVolare founder Dustin Dryden says: “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 environmentally conscious market. 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.”

Lilium CEO Klaus Roewe adds: “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 jet and helicopter operations is a great fit for our commercial first phase: getting the premium segment to adopt our aircraft while preparing the entire ecosystem for a larger market. eVolare's visionary approach to sustainable air mobility also makes it the perfect partner for the UK.”
