New Pods Could Transport Passengers Directly from Home to Destination

Written by 

Taking a flight means first getting from your home to the airport, either by car, train, or bus, then walking into the airport, where you have yet another wait to board the plane. But a new invention out of Switzerland could provide passengers a seamless travel experience, taking them from home to their destination without having to change vehicles at all.

The concept is called Clip-Air, and it can best be compared to a shipping container. Clip-Air is a capsule that can be attached to a single flying wing, which can carry multiple capsules in one flight. Clip-Air can also be used to transport cargo, expanding the possibilities for aircraft design.

If Clip-Air takes off, it would allow airlines to pack more flights into a day, since time would be saved in lining passengers up to board. It would also reduce the need to have an airport filled with personnel to process all those passengers as they walked from the main entrance to the gate.

The way the capsules would fit to an airplane has been compared to the way warplanes carry bombs and missiles. This means the capsules could be rearranged to accommodate various passenger-cargo combinations, giving airplanes versatility they don’t have today.
