The Jumbo Stay (formerly Jumbo Hostel) is a hostel located inside a decommissioned Boeing 747-200 jetliner at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. It opened in 2009.

History[edit]

Jumbo Stay is located inside a decommissioned Boeing 747-212B jetliner.[1] The aircraft was originally built for Singapore Airlines in 1976, and later served with Pan American World Airways.[2][1] Its last air operator was Transjet, a Swedish charter airline based out of Stockholm Arlanda Airport that went bankrupt in 2002.[3]

The aircraft was bought by Oscar Diös in 2006, and moved to a location near Arlanda Airport. Its interior was almost entirely changed, although some features of the aircraft, such as the flight controls, were retained.[4] It opened as a hotel in 2009.[3]

The hotel[edit]

Inside view of the Jumbo Stay

The JumboStay has 33 rooms with up to four beds in each. A larger room, branded the "cockpit suite", is located on the upper deck. Altogether, the hostel holds 76 beds. Some of the smaller rooms are located in the engines.[3] The first-class lounge has been converted into a cafe which sells snacks and simple meals, and is open to the public.[2][4]

The hotel is a 15-minute walk from the airport terminal and can be reached by shuttle bus.[2]
