Airbus to Collaborate with Aviation Lessor LCI on Advanced Air Mobility Financing

Airbus and LCI have partnered to collaboratively develop ecosystems for Advanced Air Mobility (AAM), concentrating on strategy, commercialization, and financing in three core AAM areas.

Both partners will collectively develop AAM market perspectives and forecasts, conduct industry research, and harness data analytics to understand new applications and missions. They will support the development of new AAM solutions, evaluate new commercial structures in areas including fleet, battery and charging network solutions.

As part of the collaboration, LCI will become a key financial partner for Airbus' Advanced Air Mobility projects around certain mission types, such as emergency medical services, and will leverage its network to aid global take up and acceptance. It will also explore leasing and finance solutions for potential customers for CityAirbus NextGen.

Airbus finalised the assembly of its CityAirbus NextGen and powered on the vehicle at the end of 2023. In the next phase, the Company will commence the vehicle’s test campaign, during which it will make use of its new AAM test centre in Donauwörth, Germany.
