With a sun deck, lavish lounge areas, and virtual ceilings – Lufthansa’s humongous Explorer aircraft is essentially a superyacht with wings and it is what millionaires will use to travel the world someday.


Fitted on an Airbus A330, the Explorer by Lufthansa Technik Design is all set to storm the 2021 Dubai Airshow. This flying mammoth will put luxury private jets to shame and make superyachts bellow. Clearly intended for those billionaires who have more money than they can ever imagine spending, the Explorer concept comes with the best of everything in XL dimensions. As it is modeled on an Airbus A330, there is more than sufficient space for several lavish cabins.

The cargo door on the upper deck opens to reveal a sun deck. The ceiling of the Explorer features a projection system for virtual content. You can opt for a neutral projection for meetings, but when the sun goes down and the party starts, you could go all out and project the night sky, stars, or even a disco ball. Needless to say, the sky is the limit while you’re actually there in Lufthansa’s Explorer. Wieland Timm, Head of Sales VIP & Special Mission Aircraft Services at Lufthansa Technik, told Tech Blog, ‘In yacht building, multi-functional exploration vessels have now become a class in their own right. And many owners of such vessels also call an aircraft their own. For this fast-growing target group of VIP world explorers, we have therefore now created a flying platform for the first time. 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.”


In addition to fantastic technology, the Explorer can become a flying home that descends in a different city every night for the loaded travel-crazy populace. As per the design mockup, the Explorer will feature a vast lounge area, three bedrooms with double beds, a bar, a gym/emergency flying hospital room, and a garage below the main deck capable of easily accommodating 12 VIP guests.
