This article combines two of my favorite things, aircraft and design! It is about The Jumbo Hostel that was built on a decommissioned Boeing 747 that sits on airport property at Sweden’s Stockholm Arlanda Airport. Opened in January of 2009 as the first in a chain of hostels, it contains 25 rooms, including a luxury suite in the cockpit; showers and restrooms; a cafe and lounge; and shuttle service to the airport terminal. The designers even left some of the original seats on the plane that show the stark contrast between the plane’s original style and its current look. Each room has at least one bed, a flat screen TV, Wi-Fi, and includes breakfast from the lounge cafe.
Personally, I would love to stay here! Cockpit suite for me please! I wouldn’t sleep, I would be too excited watching the runway! I hope you enjoy this article and its pictures as much as I did.
