The Lufthansa Explorer is the future of decadent world travel.
You’ve heard of a party bus, now get ready for a party plane.
The German airline has taken the concept of a luxury cruise and taken it to the skies.
This private jet features a spa, a dance floor, a VIP balcony and even a garage with two Brabus motorcycles in it.
The concept team at Lufthansa looked at the idea of a cruise and thought: how can we make this way more luxurious?
The Explorer is a wide-body VIP jet inspired by the superyacht lifestyle.
Lufthansa noted that yacht owners value two things: being able to travel anywhere at any time and having five-star accommodation once they’ve arrived.
While superyachts are amazing, their range is obviously limited to bodies of water.
Enter the second-largest airline in Europe.
“Unlike a yacht, 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,” Wieland Timm from Lufthansa Technik says.
The Lufthansa Explorer is an incredibly versatile private jet and includes some never-before-seen features.
But this level of luxury doesn’t come cheap, and one of these is expected to cost around $403 million.
The entrance features a lounge and a stylish circular bar.
The next room is the main cabin, which has projectors built into the walls and ceiling.
This means you can totally transform the space depending on your mood.
Passengers can display disco lights, underwater scenes, the night sky, or whatever the occasion calls for.
There will be no eating off foldaway trays here as there is a full-sized dining table, as well as multiple sofas and coffee tables.
And to really emphasize the fact that this is a party plane, the dining table retracts to reveal a dance floor.
Plus there are pop-up DJ decks.
The Explorer is designed to be a mini resort, and what would a luxury resort be without a balcony?
The main cargo hatch unfolds to reveal a large deck where passengers can enjoy views of whatever private airport they’ve landed at that day.
There are multiple bedrooms on board and the Lufthansa Explorer can sleep up to 12 people.
If they tire of the dance floor, guests can head to the rear where they’ll find a gym and a spa room.
On this plane, there is no such thing as baggage restrictions.
Guests can bring all sorts of items that they wouldn’t be able to on a regular plane, thanks to the Explorer’s garage.
The rear of the plane features a glass floor, which looks down into the Brabus Adventure Lounge.
Here you’ll find two Brabus 1300Rs, the first motorcycles made by the German tuner, which are included with the Explorer.
But don’t feel limited to just taking two luxurious limited-edition motorbikes on holiday with you.
“You can take all your special equipment with you,” Timm says.
“No matter if it is a car, off-road vehicle, wingsuit, wine cellar, exploration laboratory or even an emergency medical room.”
Great news for those of us who always end up paying extra to take our wine cellars on the plane with us.
