ArcosJet Places Order For Ten Lilium Jets
Dubai-headquartered firm ArcosJet DMCC has announced the purchase of ten electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) jets from Lilium. These are likely to be delivered through 2026 and 2027. And since ArcosJet is an exclusive authorised dealer for private sales of Lilium Jets, customers in the Middle East will soon be able to order one.
The first model planned for production is called the Lilium Pioneer Edition Jet. It has a seating capacity of four and can travel nonstop for up to 17km at speeds of up to 250kmph. The aircraft maker confirms that the first manned flight is scheduled for late next year, while the type certification is expected in late 2025. Production will commence once those two stages have been completed.
At the ongoing Dubai Airshow 2023, ArcosJet and Lilium have set up a full-scale mockup for the Lilium Jet’s interior. Visitors can find them at stand 84.
