The Airlander - A New Type Of Luxurious Transportation For The Rich
A new type of luxurious transportation for the planet's rich people is almost a reality - The Airlander. When it will be operational?
The Airlander is a "hybrid airship", which differs from airplanes in that it doesn't need a runway to take off, just a flat airfield.
The sophisticated aircraft is the length of a football pitch and the height of six double-decker buses, and inside is a cockpit. The rest of the aircraft will be enjoyed by passengers.
The Luxurious Conditions Of The Airlander
Airlander 10, designed in partnership with Design Q, has a large living area with a seating area and a bar.
Not only will there be huge glass windows, but there are even glass panels on the floor... imagine the experience you will have!
Guests will be able to stay in one of eight bedrooms, each with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom that includes a toilet and a shower.
Full connectivity, in-flight WiFi, and dining and entertainment experiences would also be found on board the magical aircraft.
When Will The Airlander Be Fully Operational?
The luxurious aircraft could be operational by 2026, with Spanish airline Air Nostrum and some luxury cruise ships interested.
Tom Grundy, managing director of Hybrid Air Vehicles, which is behind the Airlander, said that "it will be more like traveling on a cruise ship than an airplane."
Those who will be using this unique mode of transportation should not expect a quick trip. Its top speed will be 100mph, much slower than the speed of a passenger plane.
However, when air congestion and reduced boarding times are taken into account, the time will be similar to short-haul flights.
But, of course, the price of such a trip will be in accordance with the luxury the Airlander offers its rich passengers.
