Lilium and UrbanV to collaborate on vertiports in Italy, the French Riviera and beyond


Partnership will support electrification of premium tourist routes in the regions with vertiport infrastructure for Lilium aircraft and customers.

Electric mobility is taking shape in Italy and the French Riviera. Lilium N.V. (NASDAQ: LILM), developer of the first all-electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) jet and UrbanV, a leader in vertiport design and management, have announced their partnership for the development of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) infrastructure.

The companies’ partnership to develop vertiport infrastructure will enable eVTOL networks for Lilium aircraft and customers with an initial focus on Italy and the French Riviera, where UrbanV will launch its operations, with potential for further markets in the future.

UrbanV brings efficient and sustainable advanced air mobility to urban centers with its extensive design and infrastructure expertise for the development of vertiports. Lilium will benefit from their strong foothold and key airport access in Rome, Venice, Bologna, Nice, Cannes, St. Tropez, and surrounding areas. Initial focus will be on creating the infrastructure to enable first sustainable eVTOL routes.

Vertiports – take-off and landing areas for eVTOL aircraft the size of a helipad – are a key component in realizing the enormous potential of the Lilium Jet. Vertiports provide access to sustainable, high speed, and affordable services to connect communities.

Lilium and UrbanV’s partnership will facilitate the movement of people more rapidly and efficiently, while being instrumental in delivering some of the first premium eVTOL flights within Europe.
