Overlooking the runway at the Netherlands’ Teuge Airport is a 1960 Soviet Ilyushin 18 four-engine turboprop airliner that — after years of service in the fleet of the East German airline Interflug — has been painstakingly “converted into a single luxury suite”
Hotel planes are a pilot’s dream and one of the first items on a world traveler’s to-do-list. This plane in particular is over 40 meters in length and stationed at Teuge airport, giving you a great view of the run way. It was first built in 1960 and has historical significance, having been used as a government plane for DDR dogs.
Inside the plane, you can expect luxurious amenities like a Jacuzzi, infrared sauna, mini-bar and over with microwave. It’s something better than first class, and they even greet you with a tasty welcoming package.
