Charter company Air Charter Service recently hosted a rave for 100 VIP guests on an Airbus A340 bound for Frankfurt.
The guests — who were mainly chosen from a prize draw — were all on their way to BigCityBeats’ World Club Dome music festival — and the plane party provided the perfect warmup.
There were also some of the event’s sponsors, friends of the DJs, and production crew aboard the aircraft.
The plane took off from London Stansted, stopped in Munich, then ended up in Frankfurt — and there were Champagne receptions at either end.
On board, the partygoers were treated to canapés, beer, and yet more Champagne, as well as sets from DJs Afrojack, Le Shuuk, Rui, and Robin Schulz — all while they were in the sky.
It all started with glasses of Champagne in the VIP lounge at London Stansted airport.
Caroline Werf, managing director of Air Charter Service Germany, said: “Last year we arranged a Boeing B747 to make the trip, but they wanted to make it a more exclusive event this time, on a smaller aircraft.”
So the A380 made for a more intimate affair.
Most guests made time for a quick selfie before entering the jet.
Inside, it was kitted out with “World Club Dome” logos.

“Four of the top names on the bill started the party in the air for the 100 lucky passengers,” Werf said. “Afrojack, Le Shuuk, Rui, and Robin Schulz all performed DJ sets on the aircraft as it flew from London to Munich and then on to Frankfurt for the main event.”

Here’s Le Shuuk’s set, which a lot of guests wore onesies for — though it’s not entirely clear why.

The VIP guests then descended upon Frankfurt for a weekend of debauchery at the BigCityBeats World Club Dome music festival.
The event will take place again next June 1 to 3 — and it’s likely there’ll be a similar plane pre-party.
