This Luxury Air Traffic Control Tower Will Make You Want to Sleep at the Airport
The idea of sleeping at the airport is usually a nightmare scenario for travelers, but Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport is changing all that with a new, luxury pop-up apartment located in the unlikeliest of places.
An abandoned control tower at the airport has been completely transformed into a one-of-a-kind apartment overlooking the airport’s runways and their inviting a few lucky adventurers to spend the night.
The apartment, designed by Swedish designer Cilla Ramnek, allows guests to take in panoramic views with flood to ceiling windows and comes furnished with a breathtaking bedroom space decorated in all slate gray and black, a separate bathroom, kitchen and dining area, The Telegraph reported.
And while staying in this space sounds dreamy it comes with a big catch: Just five people will ever have the opportunity to sleep over. And the only way in is to win a night’s stay via a competition by HomeAway.
“Thanks to our partnership with Swedavia and Stockholm Arlanda, we’re able to bring to life the #HomeAwayArlanda, where the end of the runway is actually the beginning of a Nordic adventure,” Aye Helsig, Regional Director Central Europe from HomeAway, explained in a statement. “Kicking off a memorable vacation in a flight tower symbolizes the perfect take-off point to discover Sweden and the other Nordic countries, while giving travellers the freedom to take control of precious holiday time on their own terms, which is exactly what vacation rentals offer families and groups of friends travelling together.”
The winners of the competition will not only be treated to a night in the tower, they will also win three nights in HomeAway accommodations in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo, or Helsinki, The Telegraph noted. Winners will also be allowed to bring up to three guests along for the incredible journey.
The competition closes on July 30 so get your entries in now.
