The Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is offering a once-in-a-lifetime getaway for globetrotting travelers aboard their brand new private jet.
The famed luxury hospitality brand just announced four ultra-exclusive global journeys, two of which will be serviced by the company's custom Airbus A321LR.
While the standard aircraft can normally carry over 200 passengers, the outfitted Four Seasons Private Jet's lounge areas, plush leather-upholstered seats with 6.5 feet of personal space, over-sized bathrooms and cocktail lounge allow for a maximum of 48 passengers.
And that's just transportation. Bloomberg has further details on the actual experiences:
Two are back by popular demand. The Timeless Encounters journey focuses on vibrant city centers and tranquil islands in nine destinations, while the International Intrigue trip is a four-continent trek through cultural capitals, remote islands, and the African savannah.
Four Seasons has also designed two brand-new offerings, using feedback from past customers, says Javier Loureiro, director of guest experience at Four Seasons. Repeat jet guests made up 34% of the travelers in 2019.
One of the new offerings is the Remote Wonders trip...the other new trip is a 24-day whirlwind from Oct. 5-28, 2021, called Ancient Explorer.
If touring the world on a private jet sounds expensive, it is: these extremely elite vacays start at a whopping $163,000 per person. Read on to learn more about each extravagant adventure:
