GlobalX signs LOI for 50 all-electric Alice aircraft

Miami-based GlobalX, a charter jet provider for cargo and passengers, signed a letter of intent with Eviation Aircraft to order 50 all-electric commuter Alice aircraft. The nine-passenger aircraft will be used for new routes in Florida, the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Alice is powered by two magni650 electric propulsion units by magniX. According to the company, the aircraft produces no carbon emissions, significantly reduces noise, and costs a fraction to operate per flight hour compared to light jets or high-end turboprops. "Charter travel is attractive to both individuals and groups as it offers flexibility, privacy and convenience," Eviation President Gregory Davis said. "Alice represents a pioneering approach to making this type of aviation sustainable for generations to come. We are delighted to enter this agreement with GlobalX, whose investment in zero-emissions flight demonstrates the airline's commitment to cleaner skies, lower operational costs, and the provision of the most innovative options for air travel. Quieter, smoother and with a cabin design that defines the future, the in-flight experience aboard the Alice will offer GlobalX passengers a new way to fly." GlobalX expects to take delivery of its initial Alice aircraft in 2027 and is evaluating the cargo aircraft variant of Alice for supporting its cargo customer base. "Eviation's Alice aircraft is setting the standard in sustainable aviation, and we plan to offer the aircraft to our cruise line, tour operators, leisure travel providers, and business clients with a need for short-haul charter flights across Florida," Chair and CEO of GlobalX Ed Wegel said. "The Alice aircraft will allow us to offer sustainable, regional flights to and from major markets, and is the first step in our initiative to be a zero-carbon emissions airline by 2050. We are proud to be a launch customer for Eviation and lead the charge in bringing carbon-free air travel to our passengers."
