The invention relates to an advantageous design of aircraft, such as passenger or cargo transport aircraft. The invention also relates to a system for loading and unloading aircraft of this type at airports. The invention additionally relates to passenger or cargo modules that can be used in these aircraft or in systems of this type for loading and unloading. The invention is characterized in that the aircraft is divided into a propulsion and lift unit (1001) and at least one module (1050), which can be coupled to this propulsion and lift unit and which serves to accommodate passengers and/or cargo. The aircraft and the module are designed so that a coupling and decoupling of the module ensues without any significant movement of parts of the propulsion and lift unit.
