All aboard The Flying Bum.

In December we brought you news of the Airlander 10, which drew ass-related nicknames given it's similarities to a gigantic rear end.

Much more than just a giant, white, airborne booty, the Airlander 10 airship is potentially the future of travel. Relying on a giant balloon of helium to get it up and into the sky means far less emissions than your regular plane, making an airship a much greener option.

get lost has recent;y 'caught wind' of some more news: OceanSky Cruises have set a date for the first flight for the Airlander 10: to the North Pole (or Svalbard) in 2024/25.

The world's largest aircraft can go quite low and slow, and quietly too, making it ideal for an epic and pristine place full of wildlife..like the North Pole. In fact, it's probably a lot quieter than a lot of other Gluteus Maximus' we've come across, and it comes with a bar and bedrooms and a James Bond-like lounge.

Check out the video below for an idea of a 36-hour roundtrip to Svalbard might look like:

 

OceanSky Cruises are heading to the North Pole and taking people with them…from the second half of 2024.
