Benelux-based business jet operator ASL Group has signed an agreement with Lilium for the delivery of six Lilium Pioneer Edition Jets. The agreement, which includes deposit payments, converts an earlier MoU between the two companies that was disclosed last year during the Farnborough International Airshow.

ASL Group is a leading business jet operator in the Benelux and the owner of the first electric aircraft in Belgium. ASL Group intends to manage and operate the aircraft for its customers as part of a sustainable, high speed network connecting major hubs across Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg and western Germany.

Owner and CEO Philippe Bodson says: “Our company is constantly seeking new ways to operate responsibly and contribute to a healthy future, both socially and ecologically. The Lilium Jet is a great opportunity to provide better value to our customers in a sustainable way. With zero operating emissions, vertical take off and landing capability and a spacious premium cabin, Lilium represents the best option on the market.”

Lilium CEO Klaus Roewe adds: “The conversion of our MoU with ASL shows the strength of our continued partnership. ASL Group is a truly innovative company with a vision to provide the best services for its customers. With the highest population density in Europe, Benelux represents a perfect use case for the Lilium Jet, with its expected high aerodynamic performance and low noise profile.”
