Non-Stop Passenger Loading is a method utilized by airships to provide a ferrying service for passengers to and from local pickup zones. It negates the need for a traditional airport because it allows passengers to board a VTOL and fly directly to the airship while it is en-route.

Even though an airship is considerably slower than a standard jetliner, end to end flight times for passengers are similar. This is because passengers can embark on a VTOL

Efficiency is also an enticing advantage for operators. Newer electro propulsion airships have extensive solar arrays that provide low cost power.
