World's Longest Aircraft To Have Luxurious Bedrooms and Glass Floors

Published : 8/13/2018

British aerospace firm Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV) and automotive and aviation design consultancy Design Q have partnered to develop a luxury tourism version of HAV's industrial Airlander 10, currently the world's largest aircraft.

The massive ship's new design will feature en-suite bedrooms, an Infinity Lounge featuring both glass ceilings on the floor and roof and an Altitude Bar for fine dining and drinks. The project, entitled ‘Airlander Luxury Tourism Design Development Project,' was awarded a £60,000 Design Foundations Round 2 grant by the UK’s Innovation Agency.

The blimp-like vehicle is part airship,part helicopter and part plane.

Helium gas and four engine propel the aircraft which had its first flight in 2016.

Airlander 10 is also a hyper-efficient aircraft capable of flying for weeks at a time. The ship can also land virtually anywhere, including in desert sand, ice, and water, which means passengers can travel in luxury to some of the world's hardest to reach regions.
