The Aircraft for Everyone
Lilium enables you to travel 5 times faster than a car by introducing the world’s first all-electric vertical take-off and landing jet: an air taxi for up to 5 people. You won’t have to own one, you will simply pay per ride and call it with a push of a button. It’s our mission to make air taxis available to everyone and as affordable as riding a car.
In 1894, Otto Lilienthal began experimenting with the first gliders and imagined a future in which we could all fly wherever we want, whenever we want. Lilium is turning that dream into reality. We are bringing personalized, clean and affordable air travel to everyone.
Take-off and Land Anywhere
Quiet electric vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) is the technology that will change travel forever. It enables you to access city centres with an aircraft. A large network of small and inexpensive landing pads and central places in cities will allow you to quickly enter an aircraft anytime and fly anywhere you want. Leaving the city after a stressful day will soon be transformed into a thrilling ride. By travelling through the air you’ll be able to avoid time-consuming traffic jams, while enjoying a magnificent view.
Your Air Taxi.
Fast and Convenient.
Imagine reducing your one-hour commute from home to work down to 15 minutes. Imagine never being stuck in traffic again, and paying not more than the cost of a train fare. Depending on your commute, you could save as much as 2 hours every day, time better spent with your friends and family, or pursuing other interests. All you would need to do is call your Lilium air taxi to meet you at the nearby landing pad.
Take off with the Push of a Button
Whether you need to get to a meeting quickly, or plan your family ride to the airport: just select a landing pad nearby, and your jet will be ready for you in a few minutes. A network of landing pads and jets allows you to quickly reserve a jet at the appropriate time. We are working actively with leading mobility service providers to deliver a seamless user experience from booking through to landing.
70 km in 15 Minutes
Escaping the city after a hectic day is a desire most of us share. Lilium enables you to travel long distances much faster. The consequence: living in the countryside while working in the city is no longer a dream. Lilium increases your potential life radius by a factor of 5.
70 km / 15 min.

A Healthier, Cleaner, and More Affordable World
Air pollution, noise, congestion, and ever-increasing real estate prices are problems most larger cities face. Yet they also offer a range of opportunities: in culture, education, entertainment, and last but not least, jobs. With Lilium it becomes possible to profit from these benefits without the downsides of either high real estate prices or long travel times.
Lilium will have a massive positive social and environmental impact:
- Lilium will reduce travel times by a factor of 5, so people can live in the countryside and still work in the city.
- Apartments in the city will increase in affordability, since living close to work is no longer a factor.
- Lilium will reduce the need for a car, which means there will be less transit traffic and less noise in our cities.
- Lilium jets require virtually zero infrastructure investments like roads or bridges. Landing pads can be developed by anyone, Lilium will only provide the requirements and invest in the early phase to push distribution.
- Lilium jets have zero operational environmental impact, they’re 100% emission-free.
