The Space

***DO NOT click “Request to Book***
Please click, CONTACT HOST, to participate. Pick any date and tell us why and with whom you would like to stay in the Airplane Apartment! (in English – max 100 words).

Calling all airplane aficionados! Fasten your seat belts for this amazing aircraft loft. After crossing the globe 3675 times, this beautiful blue and white jet will be temporarily available as a unique living space.

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.

Located right beside the runway of Amsterdam’s bustling Schiphol airport, our detached airplane comes with all conveniences and will truly be your home away from home. Inside the bright 366m² plane with 116 windows you will find a large living room, one master bedroom, two children’s beds, two kitchens and eight small bathrooms. It comes with Wi-Fi, a toaster, a coffeemaker, comfortable first class chairs, a game console and a giant cockpit panorama window.

Step inside the sliding front door and make yourself right at home. There are plenty of books and magazines in our library to enjoy. Take a seat, enjoy 12 meters of leg space and watch other planes take off and land in the back yard.

Rather watch a movie? All time classics like Snakes on a Plane, The Aviator, Top Gun or Disney’s Planes are available on the home cinema system.

Our kitchen is small but very functional. It’s equipped with everything you need to prepare your meal: cutlery, pans, ovenware, utensils, etc. There’s also a cooker and a basic stove. Please feel free to use whatever you find in our kitchen and fridge.

The master bedroom comes with a comfortable king size bed that ensures a long haul night’s sleep.

Families with children are welcome. Our amazing kids room will make your kids feel like they’re on cloud nine. It comes with two beds and everything small pilots need to keep themselves busy for hours.

The free nights for this contest fall during the dates Kelley and I will be in London. We wouldn’t mind taking a quick hop to Amsterdam for our first Airbnb stay. Schiphol Airport Albert Heijn Market is convenient for groceries and beer prices are no more expensive at the airport than in town.

On November 28, 29 or 30, airplane aficionados have the chance to spend the night inside KLM’s recently retired MD-11 airplane at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. From now through November 20, KLM is asking all fans of the three-holer aircraft to enter for the overnight stay on Airbnb.

KLM has cleared out the seats in order to create an Airline Apartment complete with 116 windows, a large living room, one master bedroom, two children’s beds, two kitchens and eight small bathrooms. It comes with Wi-Fi, a toaster, a coffeemaker, comfortable first class chairs, a game console and a giant cockpit panorama window.

KLM will be awarding one winner for each of the three nights and each winner may bring up to three guests. Winners will also receive international roundtrip flights on KLM to reach Amsterdam and a 500 EUR Airbnb gift card.
