Germans launch flights for nudists

Careful with that coffee, Klaus

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A German company will later this year launch flights for nudists, aimed specifically at former East Germans who pine for the good old days under Communism when just about the only thing that wasn't illegal was getting your kit off.

The service will run from 5 July from Erfurt in southeast Germany to the Baltic Sea island of Usedom, with 50 unclothed passengers stumping €499 a pop to fly as nature intended.

Enrico Hess, founder of OssiUrlaub.de, told AFP: "In the former East Germany, naturist holidays were a much-loved way of spending the best weeks of the year. We want to make that freedom possible above the clouds too."

He added: "All the passengers will fly naked, but they are only allowed to undress once they are in the plane. But then they will be able to enjoy the hour-long flight in the way God intended."

In case you're wondering, the aircraft's crew will keep their clothes on. ®

Bootnote

Yes, we know what you're thinking: if the US's Department of Homeland Security gets wind of this the next time you take an internal flight between New York and San Francisco, you'll be leaving your apparel at the security desk. We challenge even the most ingenious member of al-Qaeda to conceal a box-cutter and binary liquid explosives when he's got nothing more than an in-flight safety leaflet to cover his modesty.
