The travel industry has been nothing short of creative in finding ways to cope with two long years of Covid-related travel restrictions. from flights to nowhere to bringing first class dining experiences to the comfort of our homes and now... party planes.
German airline Lufthansa has unveiled its £325,000,000 party plane, which they have named Explorer. Designed and modelled to function like “a superyacht in the sky”, Explorer is a passenger aircraft refurbished to include a discotheque, bar, dining area, glass floor and a balcony (which can only be extended when the plane is grounded, of course).
“Unlike a yacht, however, our Explorer aircraft allows passengers to travel to the other side of the globe within hours and set up their own individual base camp for further activities,” says Wieland Timm, head of sales VIP & Special Mission Aircraft Services at Lufthansa Technik, the German design studio behind the project. “This opens up completely new possibilities for explorers.”
