Aircraft component parts, repair and supply chain solutions provider AJW Group is to develop global material services and distribution to support the Lilium Jet's global aircraft operations and Lilium's aftermarket services business.

AJW will manage Lilium's eVTOL spares inventory, undertake delivery of warehouse and logistics services, carry out repair and asset management, and will serve as the exclusive parts distributor for Lilium customers worldwide. The partnership supports Lilium's goal of delivering competitive operating costs and superior parts availability; material management will be a core component of its aftermarket services business, comprising also training, digital, ground operations and in-service support functions.

Scott Symington, AJW Group's chief commercial officer, comments: "Innovation is one of our core values at AJW, deeply embedded in the fabric of our operations. We are driven to pioneer revolutionary products, strategically positioning the group at the forefront of transforming aviation efficiency. Our partnership with Lilium marks a significant stride towards realising this vision and steering the industry towards a more sustainable aviation future."

Lilium CCO Sebastien Borel adds: "This is a very important step as we advance towards our planned entry into service in 2026 and a major milestone in the development of our strategic and comprehensive support offerings for our customers. AJW's proven world-class expertise in material management and exemplary warehouse and logistics services align seamlessly with our commitment to excellence. Together, we look forward to driving innovation, efficiency and sustainability in the aviation sector, showcasing our collective dedication to delivering cutting-edge solutions and supporting our customers with attractive unit economics."

Lilium began production of the Lilium Jet in late-2023, following Lilium's DOA by EASA, evidencing that Lilium has the organisation, procedures, competencies and resources, and demonstrated the rigour required to certify aircraft according to the very highest safety standards. As the Lilium Jet enters into service and the global fleet size grows, Lilium is expecting material profit contribution in recurring revenue from its aftermarket services business.
