Inside the giant flying hotel that will ferry 5,000 people through the sky and never land

The Sky Cruise will also be piloted by artificial intelligence.

This is the giant flying hotel that will be able to ferry 5,000 people through the sky. 

Called the Sky Cruise, the flying hotel will have everything you could possibly want in a luxury resort.

It will have restaurants, bars, gyms, theatres, swimming pools, and even a shopping mall all suspended high above the clouds.

The Sky Cruise will be piloted by artificial intelligence (AI) and will be powered by 20 nuclear-powered engines.

The concept was revealed by designer Tony Holmsten this week. 

In a video posted to YouTube, Holmsten described it as “the future of transport.”

He said the hotel will be able to remain suspended in the air for years without ever touching the ground. 

Instead, airlines will fly guests to and from the luxury resort in electric planes. 

The futuristic sky hotel will have a big hall offering 360-degree views. 

There are even external glass elevators connecting the hall to the main deck. 

So if you’re afraid of heights, this might not be the holiday for you. 


On each side of the Sky Cruise there will also be three balconies, which Holmsten calls ‘viewing domes’ where guests can star gaze or see the northern lights. 

Apparently, guests of the flying hotel won’t have to worry about turbulence either.

Supposedly, its AI systems can “predict air turbulence minutes before it happens” before intervening to prevent guests feeling any vibrations.

Holmsten says the hotel will simply “glide over it.”

And if all that’s not enough, apparently we don’t have to worry about the carbon footprint of the sky hotel either. 

The hotel’s 20 electric engines will be powered by “clean nuclear energy.”

Supposedly, that means it will also “never run out of fuel.”

By the sounds of it, it’s all a bit too good to be true. 

So we’ll just wait to see what comes of the Sky Cruise, but in the meantime, check out the fully electric VTOL aircraft by Archer – a plane the company says will take over the future of transport.
