Italy and southern France also provide many options for point-to-point visits when travel time can be greatly reduced and vertical landing is necessary, with a strong need for a sustainable, efficient, and flexible method of transportation.

We are thrilled to be partnering with one of the leading European providers in on-demand air mobility,  GlobeAir. The French Riviera and Italy are key markets, and we are confident that our shared commitment to innovation and partnership will result in a premium customer experience

The Phoenix 2 Jet’s entire transition from hover to wing-borne flight on both the wings and canards was also disclosed last week by Lilium. According to the manufacturer, this is the first electric jet aircraft in history to accomplish it, and the computation of the flight physics models has been confirmed.
