Discovery wanted Shark Week 2021 on discovery+ to be their greatest ever. Via full mobilization of the Skyship Services team complete with traveling mascot, an epic fully-wrapped A-60 Shark Week blimp, the result - millions of impressions and a viral social media outbreak - helped them to accomplish that and more.
In an astonishing collaboration taking place this September, Skyship Services Inc have partnered with Subway to elevate dining to new heights - quite literally. If you happen to gaze skyward and spot an enormous Subway sandwich floating serenely overhead, rest assured, it's not a figment of your hunger-fueled imagination. Named after one of their newest sandwiches, "the Beast', our A-1-70G blimp is now home to an unprecedented dining experience aptly named, 'Subway in the Sky'.
Leading the industry, Skyship Services Inc utilizes blimps for much more than just aerial advertising, allowing our clients to innovate and think out of the box when designing their dream campaign. For our new restaurant in the sky, the blimp's gondola is ingeniously designed to accommodate six devoted sub enthusiasts at a time. Each lucky passenger will have the opportunity to savor Subway's mouthwatering Deli Hero subs as they glide through the skies, offering a unique and tranquil dining experience high above the cityscape. Talk about a sandwich with a view!
Scheduled to make its first appearance in Kansas City for the NFL kickoff, the blimp will make its way down to Atlanta, Orlando, and Miami for further activation events. With flights in the 'Flying Footlong' beginning around 8:00am and finishing around 2:00pm, we will host around 40 lucky passengers a day as they enjoy their 45-minute flight experience. As always, blimps are subject to weather conditions, so dates and times of passenger rides may fluctuate.
