Seymourpowell AircruiseEarlier this month, the innovative design team behind Seymourpowell announced a totally new transportation concept: the Aircruise vertical aircraft powered by natural energy. The new Aircruise is intended to be a truly innovative air charter for luxury travel in complete style.

Originally a self-generated project, Seymourpowell‘s Aircruise is the concept design for a hotel in the sky, with low passenger numbers and huge internal spaces offering room for living, dining and relaxing, as well as scope for dramatic and inspirational public spaces. The initial design proposes a lavish living space for a lounge and bar, four duplex apartments, a penthouse and five smaller apartments.

Seymourpowell’s Aircruise concept presents an alternative take on the future, suggesting ‘slow is the new fast’. Nick Talbot, design director at Seymourpowell explains, “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. A more serene transport experience will appeal to people looking for a more reflective journey, where the experience of travel itself is more important than getting from A to B quickly.”

On Aircruise, it is the very abundance of time and space that defines the luxury experience. In a world where speed is an almost universal obsession, the idea of making a leisurely journey in comfort is a welcome contrast.

Talbot explains, “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 traveller.”

Talbot added, “It’s a world cruise not limited to the ocean, offering instead the dream-like quality and absolute freedom of flight. Passengers can choose to dine thousands of feet above a city, or take in the view whilst moving through the air over the ocean or a national landmark.” Find more information at Seymourpowell:
