The ultimate way to travel

The Zeppelin NT defines a new dimension in gentle and exclusive flight tourism.

Softly, the white giant rises into the air, majestically floating above the landscape. Floating away from everyday life. Enjoy breathtaking views of Lake Constance, the Allgäu and the panorama of the Swiss Alps.

Up to 14 passengers can be accomodated in the comfortable passenger gondola. There are two seats on the flightdeck, naturally for the pilot and flight attendant. There is also a toilet on board.

In 2001 the Deutsche Zeppelin-Reederei started passenger operations with the Zeppelin NT. Since then, more than 130,000 passengers have been welcomed on board. Let yourself be enchanted as you glide through the air with the Zeppelin NT.

Structure

The structure with 1,100kg, is lightweight with high stability. It consists of 12 segments of tri-angular carbon fiber crossbeams, connected to 3 Longerons made from welded Aluminium. Aramid ropes are also used to brace the whole structure and give it extra rigidity. All the major components, like the cabin, the fins and the engines are mounted on the structure. Therefore, even with a loss of envelope pressure, a high level of manoeuverability is maintained.
