ERFURT, Germany — OssiUrlaub.de, a German travel agency, is offering nudist tourists a chance to start their vacation early: They're chartering a private plane so passengers can fly to their destination nude.

The 55 passengers will have to remain clothed until they board, and dress before disembarking, said OssiUrlaub managing director Enrico Hess. The crew will remain clothed throughout the flight for safety reasons.

The trial nudist day trip from Erfurt in eastern Germany to Usedom, a resort on the Baltic Sea, is planned for July 5 and costs 499 euros, approx. $735.

"It's expensive, I know," Hess told the Reuters news service. "It's because the plane's very small. There's no real reason why a flight in which one flies naked should be more expensive than any other."

"I wish I could say we thought of it ourselves but the idea came from a customer," Hess added. "It's an unusual gap in the market."

Nudism, or "free body culture" (Freikorperkultur or FKK) as it is known in Germany, was banned by the Nazis but became popular again after the Second World War, particularly in eastern Germany.

"There are FKK hotels where you can go into the restaurants and shops naked, for example," Hess said. "For FKK fans — not that I'm one of them — it's nothing unusual. I don't want people to get the wrong idea. It's not that we're starting a swinger club in mid-air or something like that. We're a perfectly normal holiday company."
