The unusual property is scheduled to open in France in 2024
A former Airbus engineer, Frédéric Deleuze plans to upcycle a retired A380 into a Toulouse-based hotel.
The A380 hotel will be located at the new MEETT convention and exhibition centre not far from Toulouse airport.
Deleuze, who has 15 years of experience at Airbus, has conceived the hotel to cater to both business and leisure customers.
There will be 31 standard and deluxe rooms, two suites and an onsite restaurant
All rooms will have en-suite toilet and shower facilities. Standard rooms will feature a queen-sized bed with room for two people while deluxe rooms will accommodate three to four people with a queen-sized bed and one or two single beds.
One of the suites will be located in the A380’s cockpit, while the other would be at the rear of the aircraft, on two floors connected by its original staircase.
Emirates recently announced its own plans to upcycle its first retired A380. The airline plans to create bespoke furniture and memorabilia from the aircraft.
