Lilium appoints ArcosJet as authorised dealer for private sales of its eVTOL in UAE, Israel and Cyprus


Lilium has signed an agreement this week which appoints ArcosJet, a Dubai-based leader in business aircraft brokerage, as its exclusive authorised dealer for private sales of its eVTOL Jet in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Israel and the Republic of Cyprus, reports a press release. 

The agreement includes a commitment fee payment to Lilium and grants ArcosJet exclusivity in these territories. ArcosJet becomes Lilium’s first reseller in the Middle East and its fifth dealer globally.

The collaboration intends to jointly announce further details of their partnership at the Dubai Airshow (November 13th-17th). The companies also plan to jointly showcase the Lilium Jet at the event.

Sebastien Borel, Chief Commercial Officer at Lilium, commented, “The Middle East offers tremendous opportunity for eVTOLs and ArcosJet has an impressive portfolio of successful deals, profound knowledge within aircraft fleet management and a huge network of industry connections to help drive firm orders of our eVTOL jet.”

Mikhail Alenkin, ArcosJet Founder and CEO, added, “We see tremendous potential in the emerging eVTOL market, especially for jet-powered aircraft. We are sure that combining our experience in selling conventional aircraft with the economic and sociodemographic characteristics of UAE, Israel, and the Republic of Cyprus, can result in the region becoming a leader in the sales and operation of the revolutionary Lilium Jet.”
