The strategic alliance between Fraport, a leading global airport operator, and Lilium, an innovative electric air-taxi company, marks a significant step towards revolutionizing regional air mobility. This partnership focuses on developing a commercial network for electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, starting with a thorough analysis of the necessary planning and approval steps for implementing such operations at airports.
The global landscape of personal and commercial transportation is on the cusp of a revolutionary change with the advent of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicles and VTOLs. This transformative technology is not only reshaping the concept of urban mobility but also promising an eco-friendly future in aviation.
The countdown to the Paris Olympics has begun, and as the clock ticks, there’s a vibrant buzz about a futuristic mode of transportation that could redefine urban commuting.
These air taxis have already completed their test flights and are likely to open up air taxi travel in the coming years.
Bringing electric, vertical take-off and landing vehicles up to aviation standards could cost up to $1 billion. Germany’s Lilium would solve the problem by using suppliers with expertise in the aviation industry.
The German company Lilium and its air taxi may already be well known to those involved in the future of aeronautical vehicles. The company has recently unveiled a brand new eVTOL design and announced that they are going public.
