Airship Ventures Ceases Operations


image Dear Valued Airship Ventures Customer,

Airship Ventures, operators of the world's largest passenger airship, the Zeppelin, Eureka, have announced today that despite history-making successes and a stellar performance and safety record, they will be ceasing operations immediately.

Since its founding, the company had faced challenges including the economic recession that impacted regular passenger numbers and demanded the need for a regular sponsorship partner for the company to remain viable. Adding to this, a world helium shortage increased the company's operating costs and pressure for a long term sponsor that had not materialized.
