There is an airplane that became a tourist accomodation in Wales

A-319 flew for Etihad and Air Canada

The most glamorous camping that you can find: glamping is a very recent evolution of tourism in contact with nature in which camping has nothing to do with tents to be planted. Outdoor relax and the classic services of a hotel come together in this type of service which is having great success, especially in Wales thanks to a plane. Even an old disused aircraft can be recovered and become an alternative home with all comforts you can imagine. In Pembrokeshire area, a new residence has just been added to Apple Camping, a facility that attracts guests from all over the world.

It is an A-319 aircraft used in the past by carriers Air Canada and Etihad Airways for scheduled flights and which now has a second life. It was renamed "Arabian Nights": many of the original features have been kept, but the current use can only be linked to the tourist stay. Inside, an area has been created in which to dine, complete with kitchen, shower and bedroom with two beds that complete the whole. Original switches no longer exist and it was decided to modify them in order to illuminate the environment. It is not the first time that an aircraft has been “recycled” in an alternative way, as in the case of the Soviet-made Ilyushin Il-18 which in China has even become a supermarket (see AVIONEWS).
