Munich (dpa) - The electric air taxi manufacturer Lilium has appointed former Airbus boss Tom Enders to its supervisory board.

Lilium announced this on Monday evening in Munich.

The company is developing a five-seat electric flying taxi that takes off and lands vertically, but then uses wings to cover the distance like a conventional airplane.

Series production and the operation of regional flight services are scheduled to start in 2025.
