At the taxi price, from 2025: With the electric jet from Nuremberg to Munich


Nuremberg – Do we see the future of air travel here?

The electric air taxis from the Munich start-up “Lilium” will initially operate between Munich and Nuremberg and later also between Cologne and Düsseldorf from 2025 (top speed of 280 km / h, range 250 kilometers). “After that, the expansion of a network to other cities is planned,” says spokesman Rainer Ohler.

▶ ︎The advantage: Because the electric jets take off and land vertically, no major construction work is required: “Our Vertiports are basically helicopter landing pads with one entrance.”

Flying at the train ticket price

The flight ticket should cost as much as a train ticket for a shorter journey. “In the beginning we will still be on the taxi price,” says Ohler. That would be around 300 euros for Nuremberg-Munich. “Later with the ICE price”. That is around 50 euros.

Airport boss Michael Hupe sees good prospects for the small electric aircraft: “The ground-based transport systems around Nuremberg are heavily loaded. This results in enormous potential. ” State Chancellery boss Florian Herrmann (49) even speaks of a “fascinating approach” for the mobility of the future.

Greens parliamentary deputy Marc Schüller (57) also sees “the development of the airport as positive:“ The quiet Lilium aircraft have a good CO2 balance. If there are soon batteries without Licium, that will be a big step towards climate neutrality. ”
