Have you ever dreamed of traveling around the world on a luxury private jet? Well, that dream can become a reality with the Four Seasons Private Jet – the hotel brand’s very own private plane that jets guests from one Four Seasons resort destination to another.
Offering luxury at its best at 35,000 feet above sea level, this private jet features the very same upscale standards of the international hotel chain.
Design & Interior
The jet is a reconfigured Boeing 757 200ER that’s leased from TAG Aviation, who does the maintenance and engineering services for the plane. Operated by the Four Seasons company, it offers one of the world’s most extravagant group excursions.
The plane’s interiors were converted from a 233-standard seat commercial plane to a limited and spacious 52 lie-flat-seat private jet. The white leather seats were designed and created by premier Italian craftsmen Iacobucci, who also design some of the world’s most luxurious VIP airplane seats. When laid flat, the seats have a length of 6.5 feet, offering ample aisle space and legroom, with a total of 78 inches of personal space.
Staff & Services
Each travel itinerary features a minimum of 21 staff and crew that include 3 pilots, 2 engineers, 1 executive chef, 1 travel coordinator, a concierge, as well as a number of hotel-trained crews. A physician and a photographer can also come with the group to unique destinations such as the Maldives, or whenever the presence of this specialized staff are needed.
The private jet’s executive chef Kerry Sear considers the Four Seasons jet as his restaurant in the sky. He customizes menus based on the guests’ preferences, on the places included in the trip’s itinerary, as well as provides an a la carte menu that includes Petrossian caviar and Dom Perignon champagne, which can both be served at any time of the day.
All meals are included in the whole duration of the journey, which starts from dinner upon boarding on the first day, to breakfast on the very last day.
Even before the journey begins, guests are sent an iPad Air2 each to be able to download music, movies, and entertainment for their flights. There’s free WiFi on the plane but since live streaming is limited, guests are encouraged to download different modes of multimedia entertainment for the trip.
Guests are also provided two loot bags during the journey – one at the beginning and another in the middle of the trip. The items included in the loot bags include a Bvlgari toiletry kit, a cashmere towel, a custom-made travel journal and matching pen by Moleskin, and a pair of noise-controlling headphones by Bose. Women’s kits include a lip balm, refreshing towels, hand lotion, hand sanitizer, breath mints, and a face emulsion cleanser. Men’s kits include an aftershave cream and hair gel.
The Four Seasons private jet’s signature journey is called Around the World, which is a 10-destination and 24-day itinerary. Jetsetting from one Four Seasons resort property to another, guests get to travel to Sydney, Australia, explore the safari at Serengeti, Tanzania, dive in the Maldives, visit the Taj Mahal in India, explore the beaches of Bora Bora, and even the jungles of Chiang Mai. Traveling the world’s iconic locations has never been so luxurious and hassle-free.
The Four Seasons private jet experience is truly one-of-a-kind. Get to travel to all the corners of the earth aboard a luxurious private jet, and stay in one of the world’s premiere group of hotel chains that put your comfort, safety, and absolute enjoyment at its top priorities.
