Air-Dynamic, the Switzerland-based private jet and helicopter company, has agreed deposit payments to Lilium for delivery of up to five Lilium Jets.
Air-Dynamic says it is a proud supporter of the new generation of electric aircraft, and will operate and manage these Lilium Jets for its customers in Switzerland and Italy, thereby offering early access to the premium 'club configuration' Lilium Jet including the Lilium Pioneer Edition.
This partnership expands Lilium's reach into the high-end European business travel and tourism market. The Lugano-based company has almost 20 years of experience in helicopter and jet charters specialises in networked routes across Switzerland, Italy, the Côte d'Azur and French Alps. Air-Dynamic has a fleet of two new generation PC-12s based directly at Lugano airport and manages different jets and helicopters on behalf of private owners and AOC holders.
Air-Dynamic CEO Raffaella Meledandri says: “This partnership represents an important step for Air-Dynamic 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.”
Lilium CEO Sebastien Borel adds: “With today's partnership, Lilium deepens its reach into Europe's premium travel market. 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.”
