Plane Geeks Can Now Stay At This Holiday Rental In A Former Air-Traffic Control Tower

This former flight control tower at Stockholm’s Arlanda International airport has been flipped into probably the last thing we expected – a holiday rental.

The 35 square metre space, which has been unused for 15 years, sits next to one of Arlanda’s two main runways and offers unparalleled views of the airport from almost all sides.

The apartment can accommodate up to four guests and includes both a kitchen and bathroom. It’s decorated with a distinctly Scandinavian flare and available through the popular holiday rental website HomeAway.

You’d hope the windows were at least triple glazed, and if you don’t quite have the cash for what will undoubtedly be a sough-after spot, Stockholm have also converted a Boeing 747 into an airport hostel.

It seems like the Scandinavians have got the retro out-of-the-box airport accommodation down pat, you can browse the above gallery for a closer look.
