An airship is a type of aircraft. This tag is not for real life dirigibles, but for flying ships, usually from the fantasy or science fiction genres.
For real life airships (lighter-than-air aircraft such as blimps or zeppelins), use dirigible. When in doubt, apply both dirigible and airship, or just use the aircraft tag.
Flying boats are not to be confused with airships; they are a variation of seaplane.
