NetJets announced a partnership with Lilium®, a Munich-based manufacturer of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) jets.
In this partnership, NetJets has the right to purchase up to 150 Lilium jets for use in our shared ownership program and will provide operations support for Lilium’s upcoming Florida hub.
Like NetJets, FlightSafety International is a Berkshire Hathaway company and will also partner to provide Crew training products and services that will support Lilium operations.
“Lilium’s aircraft will expand our fleet options and provide our Owners with new and flexible means of private air travel.”
Adam Johnson, Chairman and CEO, NetJets
Fly to a nearby getaway, visit a relative a few cities over, or make the most of your next day trip. Travel on a Lilium jet means considerably less carbon impact than taking a gas-fueled car to the same destination, thanks to 100% electric power. And with eVTOL technology, helipad infrastructure becomes available, expanding access to departure and takeoff locations.
As the eVTOL market grows, regional air mobility and private aviation sustainability are growing in tandem—a true reflection of the industry’s future.
NetJets retains an industry-leading position by recognizing and investing in companies such as Lilium, who know the future of air travel must be sustainable to become commonplace.
That is why our partnership includes operations support for Lilium in Florida because decisions at NetJets—the owner and operator of the world’s largest, most diverse private fleet—have a ripple effect, and our adoption speaks volumes. – Adam Johnson, Chairman and CEO, NetJets
“We couldn’t be happier to collaborate with NetJets and FlightSafety to electrify this market and hope to forge a long-term strategic partnership.”
Daniel Wiegand, Co-founder and CEO, Lilium
