Zeppelin NT Rotterdam
Friedrichshafen, August 27th 2008 – Deutsche Zeppelin-Reederei GmbH today announced it will extend passenger operations in Rotterdam with the Zeppelin NT recently sold to the US firm Airship Ventures, until September 21st 2008. The shipment to the US will be postponed for approximately two weeks. Immediately thereafter, the airship will travel to its new home in the United States, where it will be operated in the San Francisco bay area by owner Airship Ventures. The operation of the new Zeppelin NT over Rotterdam will be extended an additional two weeks. Last year a Zeppelin NT from Lake Constance was part of an art project in the Netherlands and has performed passenger flights with big success. The rescheduled departure to the USA now allows for a longer tour over Rotterdam, meeting this years demand for passenger Zeppelin tours.
Reflecting on the extended tour, Erwin Krijger of Aerwin Technologies commented: “Having organized the first-ever commercial passenger operations of the Zeppelin NT in the Netherlands, we encourage residents and tourists alike to take advantage of this rare opportunity to experience the sights of Rotterdam as never before – by airship!”
The Zeppelin NT will be stationed at Rotterdam airport and offers 40 and 60 minute passenger sightseeing flights from September 8-21, 2008. Aerwin Technologies Ltd. will be DZR’s partner for this operation.
