Lilium has teamed up with FBO and aviation services provider Atlantic Aviation to prepare Atlantic's network of more than 100 FBOs for the Lilium Jet's regional upcoming air mobility service launch in the United States.

They will work to ensure seamless compatibility between the Lilium Jet and Atlantic's network of aviation assets across North America, enabling AAM operations at current and future locations. Atlantic operates sites at more than 30 airport locations within Lilium's planned launch markets in Florida, southern California, the Northeast corridor and Texas.

Lilium and Atlantic will focus on infrastructure deployment and operations, with an eye toward passenger experience, at existing and upcoming sites. Strategic planning will revolve around key drivers including aircraft flight paths, charging capabilities, passenger facilities, operations forecasting and more. This comprehensive approach will ensure Lilium Jet operators have access to strategic points within Atlantic's network of aviation facilities.

"Our partnership with Atlantic Aviation is a critical step toward realising our vision for a sustainable and accessible mode of high-speed regional travel," says Lilium CCO Sebastien Borel. "Atlantic's extensive presence across major US cities and expertise in ground infrastructure development and premier customer service will be invaluable in establishing a robust network that supports the Lilium Jet throughout the US."

"Atlantic Aviation is eager to work alongside Lilium, a pioneer in the burgeoning eVTOL sector, to construct the necessary infrastructure for its regional air mobility service in the United States," adds John Redcay, chief commercial and sustainability officer at Atlantic. "This collaboration underscores our firm conviction in the transformative potential of eVTOL technology in reshaping regional travel, and we are dedicated to furnishing the technology-agnostic infrastructure and assistance required to bring this vision to fruition."

Lilium's planned commercialisation approach focuses on manufacturing and selling the Lilium Jet to various individuals and companies for private, premium and shuttle operations and thereafter providing aftermarket support and services. This go-to-market strategy will allow for a diverse revenue stream and is predicated on aviation facilities being ready for the Lilium Jet, emphasising the value of partnering with Atlantic.
