Lilium has announced a pioneering partnership with Texas-based EMCJET, marking the first time an electric vertical take-off and landing jet (eVTOL), the Lilium Jet, will be available for private sale in the U.S. market. EMCJET, a full-service aircraft brokerage and management firm, will be the exclusive dealer of Lilium through 2030 for private sales in Texas. This exclusive agreement, which includes a commitment to five production slots, means EMCJET will pave the way for individuals to purchase some of the preliminary Lilium Pioneer Edition Jets in the U.S. This announcement signifies the first step in unlocking the U.S private aviation market, the largest of its kind, for Lilium.
The partnership aims to revolutionize regional air mobility, with the initial sales focusing on key cities in Texas, including Austin, Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas. Lilium and EMCJET aim to align with Texas' commitment to sustainability by providing efficient and eco-friendly transportation choices. The Lilium Jet promises leading capacity, low noise, high performance, and zero operating emissions, making it purpose-built for regional connectivity. EMCJET aims to utilize its expertise in international aircraft trading and services to offer customers a seamless and sophisticated purchasing experience.
Lilium's partnership with EMCJET is the fourth of its kind globally. It encapsulates the desire of dealers and aircraft management companies to partner with Lilium to decarbonize general aviation. By offering an elevated flying experience that is also incredibly efficient to operate, EMCJET and Lilium aspire to push the bounds of private aviation. The agreement signifies an ongoing tour de force to introduce eVTOL technology to the U.S. and the Texas market, marking a significant step towards the future of private aviation.
