Well, technically it’s none of those things. Forget what you know about airline luxury. Hybrid Air Vehicles Limited and Design Q have just unveiled the Airlander 10 passenger cabin, showcasing what’s possible in luxury travel.
With glass-bottomed floors, lavish bedrooms, gourmet dining and outstanding views, the Airlander 10 is a must-try for those seeking an extraordinary experience.
More cruise ship than jet, thanks to its slower journey time and larger accommodation, passengers aboard Airlander will have luxurious private en-suite bedrooms and will be able to enjoy horizon-to-horizon views in the aircraft’s extensive Infinity Lounge.
Effectively an ultra-luxe blimp, expeditions take an average of three days to reach a destination- but the journey is all part of the fun.
The Altitude Bar will offer drinks with the ultimate view, while 18 guests can enjoy fine dining in the skies.
“Airlander challenges people to rethink the skies – that’s the driving force behind everything we do,” says Stephen McGlennan, CEO of HAV.
“Air travel has become very much about getting from A to B as quickly as possible. What we’re offering is a way of making the journey a joy.”
Airlander 10 can take off and land from virtually any flat surface, eliminating the need for traditional infrastructure like ports or airports. This opens up opportunities for luxury expeditions to places existing transport can’t get to and offers the ultimate in transformative, experiential travel.
Airlander 10’s interior is also unusually spacious – the cabin is larger than most single-aisle aircraft, such as the A320. This space allowed the team at Design Q to use their extensive experience of luxury spaces to create something full of unique features that will set new standards for excellence in air travel. You’ll never look at modern transport quite in the same way again.
