It is not a definitive agreement but just a Memorandum of Understanding, butĀ Lufthansa has taken the first step towards Advanced Air Mobility. The carrier has signed an MoU with German AAM-makerĀ Lilium to explore eVTOL operations. Not just in Germany, but in Europe, the two companies said on Thursday.

The MoU should result in a strategic partnership for the operation of Lilium aircraft, but also maintenance and flight training. All three disciplines are well-established within Lufthansa Group, although eVTOLs will require a new approach. The partnership is also open to third parties like airports and regional partners for the development of vertiports.
