The future of travel looks both luxurious and sustainable according to the vision of London-based design company Seymourpowell. Their elegant solar powered and hydrogen fuel cell vertical Aircruise airship offers both sustainable and lavish travel.

The 30m (98’ 5”) tall floating hotel/cruise ship/airplane hybrid, is based on the ‘slow is the new fast’ principle, operating with low passenger numbers and vast internal spaces for living, dining and relaxing. The zero carbon footprint Aircruise operates entirely on alternative energy with a top cruising speed of 90mph (145kph).

“The Aircruise concept questions whether the future of luxury travel should be based around space-constrained, resource-hungry, and all too often stressful airline travel,” explains Nick Talbot, design director at Seymourpowell. “In a world where speed is an almost universal obsession, the idea of making a leisurely journey in comfort is a welcome contrast.”

“The physics of the airship requires a gigantic volume of lifting gas, yet simultaneously demands a relatively limited amount of weight. This allows for a potentially large amount of space with relatively few people onboard - a luxury for any traveler,” explains Talbot.
