This old flight control deck has been transformed into a luxury apartment suite making Stolkholm's Arlanda airport the only airport that's also a well sought out travel destination.

Artist Cilla Ramnek and the Arlanda airport partnered with vacation rental company HomeAway to give the old tower the makeover it needed. Standing 262 feet in the air, this unique luxury apartment offers its guests incomparable views of Stockholm's landscape visible from the panoramic windows that enclose the room. Situated right next to the landing strip, this transformed hotel room offers the unique opportunity to watch planes pass by, making for the perfect getaway for aviation fanatics and travelers seeking unique experiences.

Quick rental sites like Airbnb have created a market for unique travel experiences which bring new life to places like this abandoned flight deck.
