KLM Airplane Apartment – Stay the Night

KLM Airplane Apartment – Stay the NightLike0

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines seemed to have nailed this one! For those who always dreamed of living on a plane and love airports, (Like myself)!

Yes, they turned an airplane parked at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam into an apartment with two bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, Wi-Fi and a panoramic view from the cockpit. Pretty sweet, right? It’s the closest any of us can come to being Elvis without abusing Percodan. (It’s also a step up from Airbnb’s Ikea listing.)

Kids friendly, Kitchen, Internet, Buzz com, aircondition, heating, TV, Shower, breakfast, fire extinguisher and first aid kit are the listings on the plane!

“On November 28, 29 or 30, you have the chance to spend the night inside this fly apartment. Tell us before November 20 why you would like to spend the night. We’ll fly in the winners from anywhere in the world,” the listing says.

Property type: Plane
Accommodates: 4
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 8+
Beds: 3

Spend one night in a real KLM airplane on Nov 28/29/30! To participate in this contest click ‘CONTACT HOST‘ (NOT ‘request to book’), pick any date and tell us why and with whom you would like to come (in English – max 100 words).

However, like all Airbnb listings, the Airplane Apartment has some house rules. Here’s what they are, as taken from their Airbnb listing page:

House Rules
• No flying.
• Don’t use the inflatable emergency slide.
• Smoking is not allowed when the non-smoking sign is on.
• No marshmallow roasting with the jet engines.
• Please water our plants and feed our fish.
• The consumption of alcohol is not allowed.
• Please treat our plane like you treat your own plane.

Cause that’s exactly what we want to do…roast marshmallows with jet engines (You hear that adventurati?) And how are we ever not going to use the inflatable emergency sliders? What if there was a fire when we are roasting our marshmallows?

Bravo KLM! Fun idea and a great PR initiative!

  • We’ll always find our way back to each other 💫
  • There is a sandstorm in Dubai at the moment, so I decided to look back at my photos from @constancehotels during my trip to Mauritius 🇲🇺Also, a few of you asked me about the weather, and how the forecast shows that it’s always raining in Mauritius... don’t look at that! The forecast was wrong all week! We had sunny days and clear skies up until the day I left ☀️ So my rule of thumb is: Don’t look at the forecast 😊
  • Last year, I did a little sailing through the Balkans from Montenegro - Have you been yet? It’s beautiful!!! ☀️
If you are planning a trip to there this summer, I’ve posted an itinerary list of things to do in Montenegro! Link in bio!
  • Summer is approaching and I can’t wait! Throwback on this Sunday to my last summer in Croatia! Have you planned your summer vacation yet?
  • As we sometimes give all the love we have to others... we sometimes forget to love ourselves more. I’ve been on a little roller coaster ride the past few days... it’s a good reminder on how I need to listen to my body. Each one of us might be fighting a battle that no one probably knows of, or will ever know, so its always important to give people a break from time to time and let them just be. 💫
  • Mauritius and all its beauty 🇲🇺☀️ @constancehotels
  • The hardest kind of resistance is when you’re resisting yourself. When your heart wants something and your brain prevents it. When you feel like sometimes you want to explode but you don’t. Its not always pretty but you keep going because, everything that is meant to be yours, will be yours.

  • 6am wake up call 🇲🇺 @Constancehotels  #myconstancemoment
  • Good morning! It’s actually raining today but, here is the beautiful day I checked into @constancehotels Prince Maurice. I tried to aim for a grand entrance here 😊 Have a beautiful day everyone!
  • Sailed across the islands until we reached the Ile aux Phare built in 1864 and had to see how it looked from above!!
  • She never wants to leave she says, and asks me every day how much longer are we staying in Mauritius @shangrilamauritius ☀️
I totally get it - We even had chocolate wrap massages together and she slept through it all! 😂
  • I have to be honest, I haven’t stepped out of the hotel unless it’s to different islands by boat (very unlike me).
I feel like I have everything I need right now exactly where I am. It’s so strange because I still wake up every morning at 5:30!! Mauritius has so much to offer on land but on this specific trip, all I ever plan to do is be back at sea... and that’s ok!!(And eat all the pineapples in the world). This was taken at sunrise as I saw fishermen boats pass the island when everyone was asleep.
