NAYLAM selects MANTA AIRCRAFT
to adopt the ANN multi-seater for regional VIP chauffeur services.

July 13, 2022

NAYLAM, a luxury VIP Chauffeur Service operating in 4 regions worldwide, prepares to add regional air mobility services with Manta Aircrafts hybrid-electric eV/STOL multi-seaters, planning to launch 10 ANN air vehicles and offering to its customers point-to-point connections with less geographic boundaries.

Sesto Calende, July 13, 2022 - Manta Aircraft Italia (“Manta Aircraft”), and Naylam Technologies (“Naylam”) – a Luxury VIP Chauffeur Service with 20,000 customers to date in England, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Morocco, specialized in luxury airport transfers and high-end city-to-city or specific point-to-point trips – have entered into an agreement to expand Naylam's product range by adding promising aerial mobility services.

 

Key factors in the decision are the long-range performance offered by the Manta ANNTM platform in regional operations, low total cost of ownership (TCO) and flexible use as eVTOL (vertical take-off and landing) or STOL (short take-off and landing), as well as the minimal or nil infrastructure requirements. The Manta ANNTM platform enables speedy, reliable and safe connectivity to areas that are difficult to reach or negated by road congestion.

 

The agreement includes the joint development of the specific business cases as well as the launch of operation with a fleet of 10 multi-seat ANNTM aircraft to provide appropriate services in each region now being served. Deliveries are expected to begin in 2026/2027.

Saeed Kashkash, Chairman of Naylam, declared: "As a fast growing specialist in Luxury VIP Chauffeur Service, we constantly aspire to pioneer in products and services fulfilling tomorrow's mobility needs. Following the industry development, Manta Aircraft platform has been carefully selected for our operations due to its performance in terms of long range and flexible configuration of the cabin layout. These are decisive advantages and necessities in order to offer tailor-made solutions to our customers, such as airport pickup and transfer to a holiday resort several hundreds of kilometers away, and having the aircraft immediately available for a new pick-up without need of long ground stops to recharge batteries and other burdens".

Manta Aircraft CEO Lucas Marchesini added: "Following the agreement in the utility service field with the smaller ANN2 for organs transportation, winning a first partner for the large multi-seater platform confirms the business potential of the path we took two years ago: i.e. regional and inter-regional connections. The range of several hundred kilometers, the high cruise speed with low TCO and other advantages such as the independence from complex ground infrastructure, also represent a solution with unique advantages for Business Aviation."
