Embraer’s Bespoke Manhattan and Hollywood Airships Bring a Touch of the Jazz Age to the Skies

While most private jets currently offer the most modern luxuries that are available, Embraer has a new way for you to fly: post nouveau. The company’s new line of custom Art Deco inspired jets are bringing a bit of retro taste to the open skies.

Dubbed the Manhattan Airship and Hollywood Airship, the new Embraer jets will take their guests back to the roarin’ 20s with intricate details and features that recall the Prohibition era. There’s no Volstead Act on board, though.

The Manhattan Airship boasts mahogany interiors paired with brass and gold accents. There is also a metallic entry mural that pays tribute to the same Leif Neandross piece prominently featured in the Empire State Building, and the bar that borrows design notes from the iconic Chrysler Building.

The Hollywood Airship is inspired by Hollywood films and features backlit crystal structures, marble details, and 3D-sculpted leather reliefs that are shaped like Howard Hughes’ Spruce Goose, 1930s cars, and the famous Sunset Tower.

Embraer has given these special charter jets five cabin zones, with three of these spaces designed to be common areas for passengers to relax and hang out. The fourth room is a private salon, and the fifth is a dining room that features Embraer’s Upper Technology Panel for flight information and other features.

Both jets can hold 19 passengers and are set to cost around $80 million.
