The glass floor and balcony of the £325 million Lufthansa “superyacht for the skies”


The’superyacht for the skies’ concept, which features a glass floor and a balcony, has been unveiled.

Designers at Lufthansa Technik have dubbed the luxurious plane, known as the ‘Explorer,’ a personal “flying hotel.”

The aircraft, which is expected to cost around £325 million, boasts the same level of comfort and amenities as a five-star hotel.

The Explorer has a bathroom, bedrooms, an office, and even a conference room, in addition to its futuristic design.

The rooms can also be transformed into a dining room or a dance floor.

According to Lufthansa Technik, they studied the construction of luxury superyachts and incorporated elements from these vessels into air travel.

“We analyzed the typical elements of the Explorer boat class in order to transfer the design concept behind it from the water to the air, and thus into a new cabin design,” said Jan Grube, Sales Director for Lufthаnsа Technik’s VIP & Speciаl Mission Aircrаft Services.
