This $50m luxury airship could make its Middle East debut soon
Flying taxis are a pretty big deal and given how they will revolutionalise air and ground travel, it doesn't really come as a surprise that everyone is so hyped up for it.
According to an Arabian Business report however, it could be sooner than you think. Luxury airships might soon grace the skies of Dubai as a British company who produces them claims they have seen interest from potential buyers in the region.
The Airlander has a 10 passenger cabin and has luxurious private en-suite bedrooms, horizon-to-horizon views in the aircraft’s Infinity Lounge and room to accommodate up to 18 guests for trip of up to three days.
“We have had sales enquiries from organisations worldwide, including the Middle East. Airlander’s capabilities make it possible for hotel groups, tour operators, and cruise companies to offer something very unique to their customers,” Rebecca Zeitlin, media and communications manager at Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV), told Arabian Business.
"The aircraft’s environmental credentials are also drawing quite a bit of interest from organisations who operate in environmentally sensitive or protected areas."
