When it comes to steampunk, it seems the only way to travel is airship.  Along with goggles, airships seem the most common feature of steampunk.  You can't swing a parasol around without hitting one half the time.  Why are they so common?  Perhaps it is because they represent freedom.  Perhaps it is simply because now they are seen as steampunk and therefore they have to be included by everyone new who comes along.

Steampunk being steampunk, airships come in a wide variety of types and forms, everything from typical, hard science zeppelins to blimps to fanciful flying ships powered by mad science.

They are piloted by pirates and adventurers, mad scientists, merchants and navies and everything else in between.
