Zeppelin NT ("Neue Technologie", German for new technology) is an airship type that has been manufactured since the 1990s by the German company Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH (ZLT) in Friedrichshafen.

This company can be considered the successor of the companies founded by Ferdinand von Zeppelin which constructed and operated the very successful Zeppelin airships in the first third of the 20th century. There are, however, a number of notable differences between the Zeppelin NT and the dirigibles of those days, as well as between the Zeppelin NT and usual non-rigid airships known as blimps. Zeppelin NTs have always been mistaken to be Hybrid airships, when they are actually semi-rigid airships.
