The Airlander 10 will one day offer bedrooms, fine dining and an altitude bar
Future passengers of the world’s largest aircraft have been given a glimpse of its luxurious interior.The £25 million Airlander 10 airship is 92 metres long and has a wingspan of just over 43 metres.
Manufacturers Hybrid Air Vehicles Limited have unveiled images showcasing the aircraft’s stunning cabin.
Teaming up with Design Q, they aim to highlight the possibilities of alternative modes of air travel.
Funded by UK government and EU grants, HAV argue that there is a market for as many as 500 of the airships worth a total of $50 billion.
The Airlander 10 has been dubbed the ‘flying bum’ because of its distinctive voluptuous shape.

HAV envisage the aircraft embarking on three-day expeditions with up to 19 passengers plus crew.
The 46 metre long cabin is larger than most single-aisle aircraft, such as the Airbus A310, allowing for an ambitious interior.
Passengers would be able to enjoy private en-suite bedrooms and horizon-to-horizon views in the aircraft’s Infinity Lounge.
The Altitude Bar will offer drinks with incredible views, while 18 guests can enjoy fine dining in the skies.
HAV say that Airlander 10 can take off and land from virtually any flat surface, eliminating the need for traditional infrastructure like ports or airports.
The 20-tonne aircraft’s development has not been without a few hiccups. It crashed in August 2016 after it got caught in power lines.
