Bored of travelling by airplane? Well there could be a new way of flying coming to airports soon, in the form of a giant blimp.
It's called Airlander and it will be the world's largest passenger aircraft at 302 feet in length, 60 feet longer than an Airbus A380, the world's largest passenger plane.
Blimps are a type of non-rigid airship—an aircraft with no fixed structure that is inflated with gas, allowing it to keep its shape. Airships are lighter than air and navigate through the skies under their own power.
Presently in the testing phase, Hybrid Air Vehicles, the company behind the Airlander, hopes to have the vehicle in the sky by early 2016 and is marketing it as the newest thing in luxury travel, with tables and even a cocktail bar.
The company claims the Airlander will offer travelers a flight option that offers "major improvements in safety, operating costs, environmental impact and operational flexibility."
