Overview

About Airplane Suite

Plane converted to luxury suite for couples

Once the transport for top bosses of the German Democratic Republic government, this 1960 Ilyushin 18 has been converted to a single luxury suite for 2. The plane is 40 metres long and now comes equipped with a little more luxury than it's former owners would have approved of - let alone publicly enjoyed!
With a Jacuzzi, shower, infrared sauna, mini bar, flat screen TV's (three of them!), Blu-ray DVD / entertainment combo (plus a selection of DVD's), and a pantry with coffee/tea making facilities, oven/microwave etc. you can enjoy a great deal of comfort - while still sleeping on a plane.

Planes can be a bit stuffy inside, so they've included air conditioning too, so you're assured of a level of overnight comfort.

And of course... the cockpit is left untouched, so although flights are limited to your dreams, there is plenty of airplane fun to be had as you pretend to be pilot and chief steward or stewardess!

Former life
This plane flew dignitaries including Erich Honecker during it's early life as a political transport for the favoured government leadership. Converted to commercial airline use in 1964, it flew up to 120 passengers and 4 crew in slightly less comfort with East-German airline, Interflug until 1986. Destinations included Cuba, China and Vietnam as well as Soviet bloc Russia.
After the German unification the plane served as a restaurant for 15  years until it was acquired in 2007 and converted to a hotel.

This a luxurious single suite in an authentic plan, situated in Teuge Airport - about 10 minutes from Apeldoorn. The facilities are fantastic. Rainfall shower, sauna, Hi-tech coffee - and an untouched flight deck for playing pilot and steward/ess. It's a favourite for romantic celebrations, so you'll need to book far in advance for weekends, and even midweek stays are popular.
