Airship traveling / Five-star blimp Hotel

Airship traveling
Airship traveling

The dream of boundless traveling is as old as the wish to fly. This blimp combines these two issues in a flexible and comfortable way. Analogous to a nurse shark, able to stay on the ground during recovery and change position if required, the airship also provides the opportunity for a long term stay after landing or a short term stay during a journey through. According to that FestoŽs idear of a bionic power unit has been implemented in consultation with one of the Zeppelin AGŽs employee. Since it can be fed by electric power an application of solar-panels seemed to be the right way to create an environment and resources respecting vehicle.
