The journey is just as exciting as the destination for the brand that signifies luxury across the globe. Four Seasons takes their hotel and resort comforts from the ground to 40,000 feet with their Four Seasons Private Jet experience, which pairs luxury flights with signature stays at Four Seasons Resorts. The globe-hopping encounter debuted in 2015 and finishes out this year with three packages themed to adventure, culture and international intrigue.
Each vacation includes air travel and ground transportation, planned excursions, all meals and beverages, and top accommodations at Four Seasons hotels and resorts around the world. Your journey begins in the air. The Four Seasons gutted and fitted their Boeing 757 with a first class-dedicated cabin that includes 52 hand-crafted Iacobucci flatbed seats laid out in a 2 x 2 configuration, 78 inches of personal space, hand-woven woolen carpets and relaxing bi-color lighting. Each passenger also receives their own luxe provisions, including vintage Dom Pérignon Champagne to sip at will, Bose noise-canceling headphones, an iPad and free on board Wi-Fi (in the event you’re not taking advantage of the on-demand entertainment system). In flight, a Journey Manager, an Assistant Journey Manager, a Four Seasons Concierge and a Four Seasons Chef will cater to your every need along with a full airline crew. The Executive Chef crafts unique meals for each flight, featuring multiple selections of starters, mains, sides and desserts to create meals that reflect their destinations.
